Workshops on the Polish contract law

On 12 March 2015, the conference “Legal issues in international business” was held as organized by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Chemnitz.

Within the framework of this event, Mr Wojciech Rocławski ran workshops on the issues of international contract law with particular reference to the Polish law. During the meeting attended by entrepreneurs interested in legal transactions with partners from Poland among other things the following issues were raised:

  • The law applicable to contractual obligations in the EU (Regulation Rome I, CISG, national law);

  • Stages of and requirements for concluding a contract under the Polish law;

  • Separate types of contracts with particular emphasis on a contract of sale and delivery;

  • Claims for failure to execute or improper execution of a contract;

  • Termination of actions under the Polish and German law.

The issues mentioned were illustrated with examples which Mr Rocławski had an opportunity to come across in his long-standing professional career and which entrepreneurs can come across while carrying out their business activity.

In addition, the programme of the conference included speeches given by German lawyers concerning conclusion of commercial contracts, rules established in the UN Convention on contracts for the international sale of goods or conduct of arbitration proceedings with participation of entrepreneurs from different countries. Apart from workshops on the Polish law, participants in the conference could attend similar workshops on the American or Chinese law.
