Podcast: Electronic delivery service in court proceedings in Poland and Germany

  • Poland
  • Litigation and dispute management


In Poland, electronic delivery service is something completely new. It was introduced on 3 July 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In Germany, on the other hand, the possibility to deliver court documents online existed already in 2004. Since 2016 a special electronic attorney’s mailbox, called beA, has been introduced. There are some similarities in the functioning of electronic delivery in Poland and Germany, but also many differences.

In the podcast “Electronic delivery service in court proceedings in Poland and Germany” Agnieszka Feind (Associate, Dispute Resolution, Germany) and Michał Miąskiewicz (Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution, Poland) discuss the topic and share their experiences in this scope.

They will tell you – among other – about:

  • How does electronic delivery work in both countries?
  • Can other parties to the proceedings send documents via the systems used? 
  • When is the letter considered delivered?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of electronic delivery? Date of recording: 3 September 2021 The information in this podcast does not constitute legal advice. If you would like legal advice or more detailed information, please contact the authors.
