Stibbe has the pleasure of welcoming Mr Paul M. Lurie on Tuesday, 30 September as a guest speaker on the effective use of mediation for resolving commercial disputes as early as possible and avoiding unnecessary expense.

Mr Lurie is a US mediator with over 40 years of experience. He is the author of The Principles of the Guided Choice Dispute Resolution Process, which describes a flexible process that aims to resolve disputes as early as possible in order to reduce legal and expert costs and preserve a positive working relationship among the parties. He has a broad knowledge of the real estate, design, and construction industries and has many years of experience as an arbitrator and mediator of construction-related matters and disputes arising from long-term supply and cooperation contracts.

Mr Lurie will share his experience and express his views on when to have recourse to mediation and how to conduct a mediation process efficiently. His presentation will take the form of an interactive discussion with a selected group of invitees. This will be a unique opportunity for participants to apply overseas mediation experience and insights to contractual relationships and situations under Belgian law.

This seminar will be on Tuesday, 30 September 2014, from 12:00–14:00

Double roles in attributing knowledge

Short Reads - The knowledge of a person who in fact runs a company can be attributed to the company if the sole director and shareholder is a 'straw man', the Supreme Court confirmed in a judgment of 29 March 2019.

Short Reads - On 26 March 2019 the European Parliament approved an amended version of the European Commission's proposal for a Directive on representative actions for the protection of collective interests of consumers, following a debate on 25 March 2019. The Directive will become law once the Council and the European Parliament reach an agreement on the European Commission's proposal.

Damage due to a defective driveway and the Dutch twenty year limitation period: When does limitation start in case of a continuous event that causes damage?

Short Reads - On 22 March 2019, the Dutch Supreme Court ruled (ECLI:NL:HR:2019:412) that the strict liability for buildings (opstalaansprakelijkheid) is not linked to a specific damaging act but to a damaging condition, as referred to in section 6:174 DCC. Therefore, there is no reason to regard a damaging act as an 'event that caused damage' as referred to in section 3:310 DCC concerning the limitation period for claims for damages.

European Court of Justice: actio pauliana is covered by jurisdiction rule of forum of contract. A judgment with foreseeable consequences?

Short Reads - Imagine that a debtor voluntarily concludes a transaction with a third party where he knows (or should know) that it hinders the creditor's possibilities of collecting the debt. In civil law countries, a creditor can invoke the nullification of that legal act by means of a so-called actio pauliana. This raises the question of which court has jurisdiction in the case of an international dispute, regarding an actio pauliana, that is instituted by a creditor against a third party?
