Development agreement in German and Polish law - doctoral thesis by Wojciech Plesiński

We are pleased to announce that Mr. Wojciech Plesiński graduated from the Faculty of Law at the University of Bayreuth with a doctoral degree.  Mr. Plesiński defended his doctoral dissertation entitled "Developer Agreement in German and Polish law" (PL: Umowa deweloperska w prawie niemieckim i polskim) which has just been published by Nomos publishing.


This comparative law study focuses on the legal grounds, conclusion and wording of the development contract, including formal requirements, privacy policies, notarial issues, contractual obligations and consequences of their non-performance. The practical importance of this study also derives from the presentation and evaluation of collaterals for the purchaser and different approaches towards the issue of a developer's insolvency in both legal systems. It is worth to emphasize that the developer agreement is a trusted and popular form of property acquisition both on the Polish and German market.
