Attorney Andrzej Tomaszek, managing partner at DT, and attorney Krzysztof Szczecina, partner at DT, represented Fast Enterprises, LLC – a U.S. leading provider of software for government agencies – in precedent-setting settlement proceedings concerning the e-Podatki [e-Taxes] project. E-Podatki is the largest IT contract in Poland aimed at the digitalization of the Polish tax administration.
Fast Enterprises, LLC provided in particular specialized software to Sygnity S.A, a Polish software manufacturer, for the purpose of implementing the e-Podatki project.
Court proceedings concerning this case have been ongoing since 2016. Each party had filed a claim against the other party exceeding PLN 20 million. Both proceedings were multi-faceted and concerned the details of the nation-wide implementation of IT solutions over many years of the project’s duration.
In February 2021, after several months of negotiations, the parties brought the long-standing dispute to an end by reaching a settlement before a court mediator. Under the settlement, Sygnity is to pay Fast Enterprises, LCC, over PLN 14 million; furthermore, the parties are to waive mutual claims. The performance of the settlement depends on the fulfillment of the conditions specified herein.
