Access_open The Court of the Astana International Financial Center in the Wake of Its Predecessors

Tijdschrift Erasmus Law Review, Aflevering 1 2019
Trefwoorden international financial centers, offshore courts, international business courts, Kazakhstan
Auteurs Nicolás Zambrana-Tévar
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    The Court of the Astana International Financial Center is a new dispute resolution initiative meant to attract investors in much the same way as it has been done in the case of the courts and arbitration mechanisms of similar financial centers in the Persian Gulf. This paper examines such initiatives from a comparative perspective, focusing on their Private International Law aspects such as jurisdiction, applicable law and recognition and enforcement of judgments and arbitration awards. The paper concludes that their success, especially in the case of the younger courts, will depend on the ability to build harmonious relationships with the domestic courts of each host country.

Access_open Staatsimmuniteit van executie: beslagmogelijkheden voor crediteuren na de herfstarresten van de Hoge Raad (2016)

Tijdschrift Tijdschrift voor Civiele Rechtspleging, Aflevering 3 2017
Trefwoorden Staatsimmuniteit, Executie, Beslag, Hoge Raad, Internationaal gewoonterecht
Auteurs Prof. dr. C.M.J. Ryngaert
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    In de herfst van 2016 heeft de Hoge Raad een aantal belangwekkende arresten inzake de staatsimmuniteit van executie gewezen, waarin hij met name het vermoeden bevestigt dat de vreemde staat immuniteit geniet in zowel executoriale als conservatoire beslagprocedures. De schuldeiser kan dit vermoeden weerleggen door te bewijzen dat de beoogde beslagobjecten gebruikt worden of bestemd zijn voor andere dan publieke doeleinden. Een en ander doet de vraag rijzen in hoeverre de schuldeiser de volgens de Hoge Raad op hem rustende stelplicht en bewijslast kan effectueren, en bijgevolg in hoeverre hij nog executiemaatregelen kan nemen ten aanzien van goederen van vreemde staten. Deze bijdrage situeert de arresten van de Hoge Raad in een internationaalrechtelijke context. Vervolgens wordt aangevoerd dat de Hoge Raad de op de schuldeiser rustende stelplicht praktisch werkbaar heeft willen houden teneinde de bescherming die de restrictieve immuniteitsleer aan de schuldeiser hoort te bieden niet illusoir te maken. De schuldeiser kan ermee volstaan aannemelijk te maken dat de onmiddellijke bestemming of het onmiddellijke gebruik van de opbrengsten uit de schuldvordering niet-publiek of niet-soeverein van aard zijn. Ten slotte wordt geargumenteerd dat de algemene gewoonterechtelijke regels inzake staatsimmuniteit niet onverkort gelden voor een bijzondere categorie van executieprocedures, namelijk deze die betrekking hebben op arbitrale vonnissen. Door met arbitrage in te stemmen wordt de betrokken vreemde staat geacht afstand te hebben gedaan van de immuniteit waarop hij eventueel recht heeft. De conclusie is dat de Hoge Raad de deur niet volledig heeft dichtgedaan voor schuldeisers die beogen beslag te leggen op goederen van vreemde staten,

Access_open Relief in Small and Simple Matters in Belgium

Tijdschrift Erasmus Law Review, Aflevering 4 2015
Trefwoorden Belgium, small matters, simple matters, recovery of unchallenged claims, summary order for payment
Auteurs Stefaan Voet
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This article is based on a national report that was written for the XVth World Congress of the International Association of Procedural Law that was held in Istanbul in May 2015 and that focused on Effective Judicial Relief and Remedies in an Age of Austerity. It first of all sketches the general judicial context in Belgium and some of its relevant features: the judicial organisation, the goals of the civil justice system, the course of an ordinary civil lawsuit, the role of the court, and the litigation costs. Next, a detailed and critical overview of the current and future procedures that offer relief in small and simple matters is given. The current summary order for payment procedure, which was introduced in 1967, did not meet its goals. The article concludes that a new trend is emerging in Belgium, namely keeping small and unchallenged claims outside the judiciary and providing for cheaper and more efficient alternatives.

Access_open Towards Context-Specific Directors' Duties and Enforcement Mechanisms in the Banking Sector?

Tijdschrift Erasmus Law Review, Aflevering 2 2013
Trefwoorden banking sector, directors' duties, financial crisis, context-specific doctrines, public enforcement
Auteurs Wasima Khan LL.M.
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    The global financial crisis gives reason to revisit the debate on directors’ duties in corporate law, mainly with regard to the context of banks. This article explores the need, rationale and the potential for the introduction of context-specific directors’ duties and enforcement mechanisms in the banking sector in the Netherlands from a comparative perspective.
    Chiefly, two legal strategies can be derived from the post-crisis developments and calls for legal reforms for the need and rationale to sharpen directors’ duties in the context of the banking sector in order to meet societal demands. The two strategies consist in shifting the scope of directors’ duties (i) towards clients’ interests and (ii) towards the public interest.
    Subsequently, this article explores the potential for context-specific directors’ duties and accompanying enforcement mechanisms. Firstly, it is argued that the current legal framework allows for the judicial development -specific approach. Secondly, such context-specific directors’ duties should be enforced through public-enforcement mechanisms to enhance the accountability of bank directors towards the public interest but currently there are too much barriers for implementation in practice.
    In conclusion, this article argues that there is indeed a need, rationale and potential for context-specific directors’ duties; yet there are several major obstacles for the implementation of accompanying public-enforcement mechanisms. As a result, the introduction of context-specific directors’ duties in the banking sector may as yet entail nothing more than wishful thinking because it will merely end in toothless ambitions if the lack of accompanying enforcement mechanisms remains intact.

Access_open An Eclectic Approach to Loyalty-Promoting Instruments in Corporate Law: Revisiting Hirschman's Model of Exit, Voice, and Loyalty

Tijdschrift Erasmus Law Review, Aflevering 2 2013
Trefwoorden Eclecticism, corporate law & economics, corporate constitutionalism, loyalty-promoting instruments
Auteurs Bart Bootsma MSc LLM
SamenvattingAuteursinformatie

    This essay analyses the shareholder role in corporate governance in terms of Albert Hirschman's Exit, Voice, and Loyalty. The term 'exit' is embedded in a law & economics framework, while 'voice' relates to a corporate constitutional framework. The essay takes an eclectic approach and argues that, in order to understand the shareholder role in its full breadth and depth, the corporate law & economics framework can 'share the analytical stage' with a corporate constitutional framework. It is argued that Hirschman's concept of 'loyalty' is the connecting link between the corporate law & economics and corporate constitutional framework. Corporate law is perceived as a Janus head, as it is influenced by corporate law & economics as well as by corporate constitutional considerations. In the discussion on the shareholder role in public corporations, it is debated whether corporate law should facilitate loyalty-promoting instruments, such as loyalty dividend and loyalty warrants. In this essay, these instruments are analysed based on the eclectic approach. It is argued that loyalty dividend and warrants are law & economics instruments (i.e. financial incentives) based on corporate constitutional motives (i.e. promoting loyalty in order to change the exit/voice mix in favour of voice).
