EZP law firm provides legal services to entrepreneurs from the transport, spedition and logistics industries.
The legal services focus primarily on issues of carrier liability under civil, administrative and criminal laws regime - for civil torts, administrative torts arising from breaches of provisions of law and criminal offenses.
Transport entrepreneurs feel double- or
triple-punished for the same breach when fines are imposed on them, once in the
administrative proceedings, the second time in the course of criminal proceedings
or proceedings in cases of offenses and the third time in the civil proceedings regarding the recourse claims raised against them or claims for liability for contractual obligations. It should be mentioned that,
in practice it is the entrepreneur who bears the financial burden of fines imposed on drivers. Therefore, the multiplication of financial penalties and the application of multiple liability regimes for the same breach necessitates the legal protection of an entrepreneur and the respect of its rights and interests guaranteed by the guiding principle of the prohibition of punishing twice for the same act (Latin “ne bis in idem”),
as well as by provisions of the European Union and international laws. These and other issues were the subject of cases conducted by the firm, which mostly ended with annulment of the appealed decisions already at the stage of administrative proceedings.
