Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Civil proceedings do not terminate after adoption of a court decision. The enforcement of a material subjective right requires the second stage of legal defence, i.e., compulsory enforcement of a court decision. State courts are authorised to adopt decisions on behalf of the state and to ensure compulsory enforcement of an adopted court decision. Although enforcement proceedings constitute the final stage of civil procedure, it has some specific features, e.g., the representation in enforcement proceedings is distinctive. The article analyzes application of this institute in enforcement proceedings: the subjects eligible to act as representatives in enforcement proceedings, the order of execution of their powers, and the problems of adjudicating remuneration for representation in enforcement proceedings.
