The proceedings begin with a claim in which the facts and the grounds in law are put forward separately and numbered accordingly. What is being requested must be presented clearly and precisely.
Together with the designation of the claimant and the defendant, the names and surnames of the court representative and the counsel for the claimant shall be given, if applicable.
When what is requested in the claim could be based on several facts or on different legal grounds or entitlements, the claim must include all those which are known or may be invoked when the claim is filed. It is not admissible to reserve an allegation for subsequent proceedings.
Once the matter at issue in the proceedings has been established in the claim, in the defence of claim or, as appropriate, in the counterclaim, the parties may not subsequently amend the document.
