Success of the Law Office in the process of prepared liquidation under consumer bankruptcy

We are delighted to inform you that the team of the Law Office headed by Partner Bartosz Groele, attorney-at-law, with Mateusz Grzeszczyk, the trainee, and Ewa Tkaczuk, attorney-at-law, at its initial stage, successfully carried out the prepared liquidation procedure under the so-called consumer bankruptcy procedure.
On December 28, 2020, the 5th Commercial Division of the District Court in Opole announced consumer bankruptcy, at the same time approving the conditions for the sale of the debtor’s property of significant value. The case is a precedent because until recently it was not clear whether it was permissible to use the institution of pre-pack in consumer bankruptcy proceedings. Thanks to the amendment to bankruptcy law of March 2020, the possibility of submitting such an application was explicitly allowed. The decision of the court in Opole may be considered one of the first in this matter.
