Deliberations on a Liquidation Campaign for Prewar Commercial Law Companies in the People’s Republic of Poland
Keywords:commercial law companies, Commercial Register, prewar companies.
After the World War II commercial law companies, even though they had been depri- ved of their enterprises, were mostly not crossed oﬀ the Commercial Register (in Polish: Rejestr Handlowy). Regardless of the fact that they had been deprived of their proper- ties, they still existed. In spite of the fact that communists considered passing a bill that would cause their ultimate liquidation, it appeared that closing down the com- mercial law companies may actually lead to a deterioration in international relations with western states. This state of aﬀairs surprisingly meant that nowadays one can re- activate the prewar companies. Therefore documents that have been recovered are of great importance for both legal practitioners (mainly judges and attorneys at law) and theorists of law.
