As every year we participated in the European Congress of Small and Medium Enterprises which took part from 16th until 18th September in Katowice. The Congress is organized every year to promote business under auspices of the President of the Republic of Poland, the President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso and the President of the European Parliament Martin Schultz.

They involved the representatives of business, science, public adminisitration and finance sector and concentated to chalenges and opportunities which the SME's have faced recently and will be facing in the comng years.

International conference on cross-border inheritance

On 14th to 15th June 2013 we had a pleasure to participate in the international conference organized by The Regional Chamber of Legal Advisers in Gdańsk in cooperation with AEA-EAL Association Européenne des Avocats – European Association of Lawyers seated in Brussels.

The Conference was dedicated to the Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council no 650/2012 of 4 July 2012 on jurisdiction, applicable law, recognition and enforcement of decisions and acceptance and  enforcement of authentic instruments in matters of succession and on the creation of a European Certificate of Succession. Thisregulation will enter into force on 17th August 2015 and isdesigned to be fundamental for the inheritance issues,especially when diseased or inheritance are connected with another Member State, e.g. Polish citizens who live and work abroad who have property in Poland and in other countries of the EU. This regulation will have an influence on legalsituation in companies in case of shareholder’s, partner’s or owner’s death.

It should be expected that these issues will become more significant in Poland, as a result of an increasing mobility of Polish people and contracting marriage with citizens from other countries of The European Union.
