The complex presentation of issues regarding law of combating unfair competition is a distinctive feature of UCLP Portal - information concerning legal systems of Poland, Germany and France are gathered on one website.

It is of note, that all materials published on UCLP Portal are available in four different language versions – Polish, English, German and French. This gives a reader an opportunity to familiarize himself with legal regulations binding in other countries in his native language. It may be especially important for entrepreneurs, who conduct their business abroad or who maintain business relationships with foreign contractors.

UCLP Portal consists of two main sections. The first one – “Combating Unfair Competition” contains studies regarding sources of law concerning combating unfair competition, types of behavior, which constitute acts of unfair competition as well as civil and criminal sanctions for committing such acts. This section is also devoted to studies about law concerning protection against unfair business practices.

The aim of the “Compliance” section, on the other hand, is to familiarize readers with basic information about particular branches of both substantive and procedural law in Poland, Germany and France. On the subpage “Consultancy” readers may find materials regarding principles of commerce law, contract law, labour law and intellectual property law. Subpage “Litigation” contains essential information about organisation of courts and legal professions, which exist in particular countries as well as information concerning procedural issues related to pursuing one’s rights in civil, criminal and administrative courts.

An opportunity to acquaint oneself with interesting examples of judgments of Polish, German and French courts concerning combating unfair competition is a significant advantage of UCLP Portal. Abstract cases, based on frequent real cases, are also available to readers. These cases are a starting point for experts of cooperating law offices to present possible solutions and claims, which can be made in specific situations.

Unfair Competition & Compliance Law Portal combines tradition and progress by providing users with professional studies and analyses as well as current news enriched with modern media such as video comments.
