Dissolution of contract: What is a reasonable period for performance?

Suppose your contracting party does not deliver the quality you had agreed, how much time should you give them to improve their performance? In other words, when can you say: "I have lost my patience and I want to dissolve the contract"? These questions were addressed in the judgment Fraanje vs. Alukon (ECLI:NL:HR:2019:1581) of the Supreme Court on 11 October 2019. An important judgment in the field of contract law, in particular for parties who are dealing with an opposing party who does not fulfil his obligations under the contract.

Flight delay due to a screw in the tyre or oil on the track

Many factors influence whether or not a flight departs on time, with an airline having an influence on far from all matters. The delay of a flight can often not be prevented by the airline, but it is confronted with passenger claims under EC Regulation 261/2004 in case of a delay.

Reimbursement of extrajudicial costs: what is possible?

What are extrajudicial costs and what costs can you recover from a business partner? These 2 questions are in fact addressed in every case where I assist a client who wants to recover a claim. In most cases we first look at whether a case can be solved out of court. In this process - before we go to court - the so-called extrajudicial costs are incurred for, among other things, writing to and consultation with the other party or his lawyer.

Claim for damages against a truck manufacturers’ cartel

On 19 July 2016 the European Commission imposed the largest fine ever on European truck manufacturers. The manufacturers were part of a cartel. This is the case for the manufacturers MAN, Volvo/Renault, Daimler, Iveco and DAF.

No enforcement by the ILT with regard to delayed flights

Under EC Regulation 261/2004, passengers can claim financial compensation when a flight is severely delayed or cancelled. Pursuant to Section 16 of this Regulation, the Netherlands is obliged to appoint a national institution that is responsible for the enforcement of this regulation. In the Netherlands, this is the State Secretary for Infrastructure and the Environment, while the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (Inspectie Leefomgeving en Transport ILT) has been charged with the execution.
