Standstill Agreement For Limitation

The complainants welcome the comments of the judges of the Court of Appeal. The order of court proceedings is often subject to significant legal costs and, once the proceedings have been rendered, they are subject to the timetable of the Court of Justice and, in the absence of a suspension agreement, they must be served within the time limits laid down in the Code of Civil Procedure. Once a claim has been served, the claimant expects a risk of adverse costs and can expect the costs to be borne by the defendant if the claim is subsequently closed or dismissed. There are other factors that may prevent a party from initiating proceedings, including the publication of the proceedings and the escalation of the dispute. The standstill agreement expands the possibility for the parties to consider alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and try to resolve their dispute outside of the judicial process. There are different ADR options, including mediation and arbitration. If the judgment cannot be agreed (e.g. B is too short a time), an applicant initiates proceedings to terminate the limitation period and thereby protect the prescription position. Such proceedings are then often suspended (i.e. suspended) in order to allow for further investigations and to move the issue forward by the parties through alternative dispute resolution. .
