CEE Attorneys Poland has persuaded the Polish Court of Appeals to significantly lower an award of damages made against client BBA Transport System in a case involving a breach of a non-competition clause.

According to CEE Attorneys, "the Appeal Court in Poznan changed the verdict ... [and] said that the 'Pacta sunt servanda / Agreements must be kept' principal is absolutely not less important than the “Free Market” rule and it should be observed." 

Accordingly, the firm reports, the Court "moderated the penalty by 30%, so our Client won 70%."
