12.01.2017 NL law

On 2 and 3 February the IBA Corporate and M&A Law Committee will host their 5th European Corporate and Private M&A Conference in Paris. During this conference speakers will cover current legal developments in European private mergers and aqcuisitions; M&A in the banking sector; and competition law and M&A. Matthijs Kuijpers from Stibbe in Amsterdam is one of the speakers.

Matthijs will take part in the panel about “The ‘known unknown’ 2.0 – loss of profits, direct, indirect and consequential damages in European M&A deals”. This concerns only a few words in the remedy provision of an acquisition agreement, which sometimes requires little if any attention from first draft to signing and at other times the parties spend whole negotiation sessions on the subject. How important are these buzz words? What do they mean in various jurisdictions? And what are viable compromises? The panel will discuss those questions and, hopefully, give some answers.

Registration is possible before 25 January at: www.ibanet.org/conferences/conf770.aspx.

Dit is in navolging van de rechtspraak van het Europees Hof voor de Rechten van de Mens die de Raad van State reeds op dat punt terugfloot. In deze blog wordt een korte round-up gegeven van het belangvereiste en de recente ommezwaai in de rechtspraak hierover. Iedereen die ooit een beroep bij de Raad van State instelt, dient hiermee rekening te houden.

Commercial interest on overdue interest payments on a loan – uncertainty remains

Short Reads - If a person buys a car from a car dealer and fails to pay the purchase price on the agreed date, that person has to pay not only the purchase price but also statutory interest (Clause 6:119 DCC), unless otherwise agreed. If a car dealer buys the same car from an importer and fails to pay the purchase price on the agreed date, that car dealer has to pay commercial interest, which is a much higher rate, instead of the normal statutory interest (Clause 6:119a DCC).
