Success in a payment case

News / 02.08.2017

The Court of Appeals in Rzeszow, in its judgment of July 13, 2017, fully agreed with the position of the defendant – represented by the Law Firm’s lawyers – that it is not possible for a member of the management board of a company that carried out construction work to claim compensation and damages in court proceedings against the company that is the investor of the facility, if the plaintiff does not prove that the actions of the other party (the defendant) were unlawful and directly directed against the member of the management board of that company. The courts of both instances took the position that only Article 415 of the Civil Code can be applied to this type of claim.

The present judgment is final.
