Jara & Partners Represents Constructor in Dispute Regarding Polish National Stadium


Jara & Partners has brought a claim on behalf of Alpine Bau Deutschland against the Polish State Treasury – Minister of Sport and Tourism, seeking PLN 139 million in damages following construction of the National Stadium in Warsaw. 

Three companies — Alpine Bau Deutschland, Alpine Construction Polska, and the Austrian-based Alpine Bau -- were the lead constructors in developing the National Stadium (the consortium also included PBG and Hydrobudowa Polska – both of which are currently in liquidation). According to a Jara & Partners statement, “the claim concerns damage which arose following the failure of the State Treasury to fulfill its investor obligations on negligent performance of its obligations.” Claims made by Alpine Blau Deutschland include "incomplete project documentation, numerous amendments in the documentation giving rise to additional costs, and commissioning of unscheduled works." 

According to Jara & Partners, previous efforts made to to settle the dispute out of court have been unsuccessful, though the firm notes that additional efforts may be made down the road.    

Jara & Partners lawyers Przemyslaw Drapala and Andrzej Sokolowski are leading the firm’s representation in the matter.
