On July 9th, 2018 the general limitation period in Poland was shortened from ten years to six years for claims confirmed by the final court judgement. Before the new legislation, a creditor had ten years to execute a judgement, with the change, creditors now have six years. The new legislation also limited the window for which claims for damages may be brought before a court from ten years to six years.  Małgorzata Krzyżowska, Partner and head of Aliant Poland, discusses the new legislation and its implications.
