The Law Firm represented the company Karimpol and on 16 April 2012 obtained a landmark judgment from the Supreme Court which stated that an arbitration court is bound by an earlier arbitration court award or state court judgment.

In the case run by DZP, the first arbitration court found that a lease contract was valid for a fixed term. In the second arbitration proceedings the arbitration court, ignoring the first award, reached different conclusions and dismissed our claim for lease fees to be awarded. An appeal was filed against the arbitral award as a result of which the said Supreme Court judgment was issued. The value of the dispute was approx. PLN 25 million.

The case was run by experts in our Dispute Resolution Practice – Paweł Lewandowski and Łukasz Wojdalski.
