Final judgments concerning the declaration of invalidity or, possibly, revocation of the resolution on squeeze-out, obtained by SK&S lawyers.

The lawyers of Sołtysiński Kawecki & Szlęzak obtained for the Client final judgments in three proceedings concerning the declaration of invalidity or, possibly, revocation of the resolution on squeeze-out.

By its judgment of 20 March 2019 (case ref. no.: I AGa 249/18) the Appellate Court in Poznań – by dismissing the minority shareholder’s appeal – shared the position taken by SK&S and stated, in particular, that the resolution on squeeze-out providing for a compulsory sale of shares belonging only to a part of minority shareholders did not infringe the principle of equal treatment of shareholders, and the company had the right to freely choose the moment for the squeeze-out. The same position was taken by the Regional Court in Poznań in two other final judgments regarding the same resolution (IX GC 414/17 and IX GC 415/17).

The Client was represented in the matter by attorneys-at-law Magdalena Kujawińska, Bartosz Pyzder and Tomasz Stadnik, acting under the supervision of partners Robert Gawałkiewicz and Rafał Waszkiewicz.
