Project in the field of litigation
Our law firm represented an Italian pasta manufacturer in the course of a litigation procedure before the Brussels Commercial Court concerning the application of Belgian law of 27 July 1961 on the Unilateral Termination of Exclusive Distribution Agreements of an Indefinite Duration. This law, which has been incorporated into Title X of the Belgian Economic Code, is extremely protective of the distributor’s interests. The ruling granted to our client a substantial reduction of the indemnity originally sought by the distributor. We then negotiated and agreed on a lower amount of the indemnity within the context of an extrajudicial transaction.
