  • Contractual Networks in Construction Services: A Dutch Building Block'
    • Abstract: : Cooperation in construction services in many ways bears resemblance to the theory of contractual networks. From a bottom-up perspective, contractual networks are well incorporated in Dutch construction practice. In fact, the Dutch construction sector shows several frequently used contract models for construction services that largely match Cafaggi’s ideas on embedding networks in contract law. However, these networks in construction practice are not flawless. Defective coordination, information and communication lead to many problems, such as constructive safety accidents and liability issues. A striking example of the lack of coordination was the collapse of a roof in construction of a Dutch football stadium in 2011. Other difficulties Dutch construction practice has to deal with are the vast use of standard contract terms (with lots of incompatible clauses) and the fact that construction projects are primarily project-based and not sustainable. This article has a twofold purpose. Firstly, it investigates the practice of contractual networks in the Dutch construction industry. What kind of construction networks exist and by what means do they function – bottom-up – in practice' Secondly, looking at this practice of contractual networks in the Dutch construction industry, what problems does it face and how could contractual network theory improve its functioning' Network specific elements such as centrality, density and internal liability, could further improve the exchange of information and transparency in construction processes. For instance, applying the network tool density may provide insights on connection and cohesion of building participants, leading to a more effective design of information exchange between network partners. Résumé: La coopération dans les services de construction ressemble de bien des façons à la théorie des réseaux contractuels. D’un point de vue ascendant, les réseaux contractuels sont bien intégrés dans les pratiques de construction néerlandaises. En fait, le secteur néerlandais de la construction affiche des modèles de contrat fréquemment utilisés pour des services de construction qui ressemblent en grande partie aux idées de Cafaggi sur l'intégration des réseaux dans le droit contractuel. Cependant, ces réseaux dans la construction ne sont pas sans défauts. Une coordination, des informations et des communications insuffisantes peuvent entraîner de nombreux problèmes, comme des accidents de chantier et des questions de responsabilité. L’effondrement d’un toit en construction d'un stade de football néerlandais en 2011 est un exemple frappant du manque de coordination. La vaste utilisation de conditions contractuelles standards (avec de nombreuses clauses incompatibles) est une autre difficulté que la construction néerlandaise a dû affronter, ainsi que le fait que les projets de construction sont principalement axés sur les projet en eux-mêmes et ne sont pas durables. Cet article a un objectif double. D’abord, il examine la pratique des réseaux contractuels dans l’industrie néerlandaise de la construction. Quels sont les réseaux de construction existants et par quels moyens fonctionnent-ils – d’un point de vue ascendant – dans la pratique ' Deuxièmement, en regardant cette pratique de réseaux contractuels dans l’industrie néerlandaise de la construction, quels sont les problèmes auxquels elle fait face, et comment la théorie d’un réseau contractuel pourrait-elle améliorer son fonctionnement ' Des éléments spécifiques aux réseaux, comme la centralité, la densité et la responsabilité interne, pourraient améliorer l’échange d’inf

  • The Principle of Passing on in EU Competition Law in the Aftermath of the
           Damages Directive
    • Abstract: : Passing on is a key factor to define the locus standi of the claimant in damages claims in national courts. In particular, the concept legitimizes the legal standing of the indirect customer in case the direct purchaser transferred the damage to the indirect customer. Secondly, it can be relied by the defendant in case the direct customer ‘passed on’ the damage to its customers and thus it did not suffer any harm to have legal standing (i.e. passing on defence). Passing on can be considered a general principle of EU law, elaborated by the Court of Justice jurisprudence in relation to the restitution of unlawful charges and later extended to other EU policies. The article looks at the application of the principle of passing on in EU competition law, in the light of case law of the Court of Justice, soft law adopted by the EU Commission and the Damages Directive. In particular, the article assesses the application of the principle of passing on in four EU Member States (i.e. Germany, France, Italy and UK), analyzing for each jurisdiction the national case law on passing on and the on-going transposition process of the Damages Directive. The aim of the article is to assess whether the concept of passing on had already been recognized by national case law in the selected jurisdictions before the Damages Directive and thus to evaluate the ‘added value’ of EU acquis on passing on in the legal systems of the selected jurisdictions. Résumé: La répercusssion du surcoût est un facteur clé pour définir le locus standi du plaignant dans les réclamations de dommages et intérêts devant les tribunaux nationaux. En particulier, le concept légitimise l’intérêt à agir du client indirect au cas où l’acheteur direct répercute le dommage sur le client indirect. Deuxièmement, il peut être invoqué par le défendeur au cas où le client direct “répercute” le dommage sur ses clients et donc n’a pas subi de préjudice pour être fondé à agir (c.à d. répercussion du surcoût). La répercussion peut être considérée comme un principe général en droit de l’UE, élaboré par la jurisprudence de la Cour de Justice en matière de dédommagement pour préjudice subi illégalement et étendu plus tard à d’autres politiques européennes. L’article étudie l’application du principe de répercussion en droit européen de la concurrence, à la lumière de la jurisprudence de la Cour de Justice, du droit non contraignant de la Commission de l’UE et de la Directive relative aux dommages et intérêts. En particulier, l’article analyse l’application du principe de la repercussion dans quatre Etats membres (Allemagne, France, Italie et Royaume Uni), étudiant pour chaque pays la jurisprudence nationale en matière de répercussion et le processus de transposition en cours de la Directive sur les dommages et intérêts. L’objectif du présent article est de rechercher si le concept de répercussion a déjà été reconnu, avant la Directive sur les dommages et intérêts, par la jurisprudence nationale dans les pays choisis et donc d’évaluer la “valeur ajoutée” de l’acquis communautaire de la répercussion dans les systèmes juridiques des pays sélectionnés.

  • The Unexpected Change of Circumstances Under American and Spanish Contract
           Law: Different Concepts, Different Methodology, Similar Outcomes
    • Abstract: : Several recent decisions by el Tribunal Supremo (Spanish Supreme Court) have expressed the need to reconsider the contractual problems that may arise following an unexpected change of circumstances. However, these court decisions have not helped achieve normalization since they apply foreign legislative concepts and disregard the basic principles of Spanish contract law. With the help of a comparative analysis, the aim of this article is to contribute to finding answers to a classical problem of Spanish contract law that needs an urgent solution in the context of the economic crisis. American law has been chosen to carry out this comparison because this legal system has not been studied in depth by Spanish authors when dealing with this issue and additionally because the practical approach of this law would be of value to a more formalistic system such as the Spanish or others legal systems of Continental Europe as the French, where this problem has not been provided with an specific solution. It will also be shown that, despite the significant differences existing between US and Spanish law, the understanding of the problem and the solutions needed are not so different in both systems. This last conclusion is the best evidence of the fact that the value and usefulness of comparative law resides in the way of understanding legal problems and providing themwith solutions and not necessarily in making legal systems technically similar. The study and understanding of US law may contribute to finding a solution to the problem in Spain and also, more importantly, to show how the alleged differences existing between civil and common law systems are often more formal than substantial. It will also be shown the different approach adopted by US and Spanish contract law when facing crises situations. Résumé: Plusieurs décisions récentes du Tribunal Supremo (Cour Suprême espagnole) ont exprimé la nécessité de réexaminer les problèmes contractuels qui peuvent survenir suite à un changement de circonstances inattendu. Ces décisions judiciaires n'ont toutefois pas contribué à la normalisation, puisqu'elles appliquent des concepts législatifs étrangers et méconnaissent les principes fondamentaux du droit des contrats espagnol. À l'aide d'une analyse comparative, l'objectif de cet article est de contribuer à trouver des réponses à un problème classique du droit des contrats espagnol qui nécessite une solution urgente dans le contexte de la crise économique. Nous avons choisi le droit américain pour effectuer cette comparaison parce que ce système juridique n'a pas été étudié en profondeur par les auteurs espagnols visant à analyser cette question et aussi, parce que l'approche pratique du droit américain serait utile à un système plus formaliste tel que l'espagnol ou d'autres systèmes juridiques de l'Europe continentale comme le français, où ce problème n'a pas trouvé une solution spécifique. Il sera également démontré que, malgré les différences significatives existant entre le droit américain et le droit espagnol, la compréhension du problème et des solutions nécessaires n'est pas si différente dans les deux systèmes. Cette dernière conclusion est la meilleure preuve du fait que la valeur et l'utilité du droit compare réside dans la compréhension des problèmes juridiques et leur fournissent des solutions et pas nécessairement à rendre les systèmes juridiques techniquement similaires. L'étude et la compréhension du droit américain peuvent contribuer à trouver une solution au problème en Espagne et, de façon plus importante, à

  • Sham Trusts: A Comparative Study
    • Abstract: : The late economic crisis has given impetus to trusts settled in furtherance of unlawful purposes, namely, to put assets out of the reach of creditors. This scheme is particularly evident in the Italian scenario, where the courts have used the sham doctrine to tackle trusts in which settlors reserved to themselves massive powers, thereby turning trustees into marionettes in their hands. While doing so, the Italian courts have had a hard time to grasp the contours of sham. Meanwhile, in common law jurisdictions the concept of sham is going through a radical development, which undermines the canonical view based on parties’ intentions and properly focuses on trust functions under the circumstances. The intermeshing of legal orders might show that it is no longer possible to draw a clear dividing line between the civil law and common law approaches. Résumé: La dernière crise économique a permis l’essor de trusts constitués dans un but illicite, principalement pour mettre des avoirs à l’abri des créanciers. Ce système est particulièrement évident dans le scénario italien, où les tribunaux ont adopté la doctrine du “simulacre” pour lutter contre les trusts dans lesquels les constituants se réservent d’énormes pouvoirs, en transformant les trustees en marionnettes qu’ils manipulent. Ce faisant, les tribunaux italiens ont eu beaucoup de difficultés à saisir les contours du simulacre. En attendant, dans les pays de common law, le concept de simulacre connaît une évolution radicale qui ébranle le point de vue canonique basé sur les intentions des parties et se concentre exactement sur les fonctions de trust au vu des circonstances. L’interaction d’ordres juridiques pourrait montrer qu’il n’est plus possible de tracer une ligne de séparation claire entre les approches de droit civil et de la common law.

  • The Duty of Disclosure in the PEICL: A Scandinavian Perspective
    • Abstract: : The rules on the disclosure obligations of insurance applicants are key in determining what information an insurer receives at the time an insurance contract is concluded, and thus the insurer’s risk level. All European countries have therefore adopted rules on the disclosure obligations of applicants for insurance. Equivalent rules are found in the Principles of European Insurance Contract Law (PEICL). Provided that the related European political and legislative process reaches a successful conclusion, this optional instrument will offer contracting parties an alternative for the regulation of both national and cross-border insurance contracts. This article examines the PEICL’s disclosure duty rules and compares them with the corresponding rules in current Scandinavian (Norwegian, Swedish and Danish) law. The purpose of the article is two-fold: to investigate the impact of the PEICL on Scandinavian insurance contracts and to comment on the PEICL from a Scandinavian perspective. Résumé: Les règles d’obligations d’informations des demandeurs d’assurances sont d’une importance primordiale pour déterminer ce que l’assureur reçoit comme informations au moment où le contrat d’assurance se conclut, et donc le niveau de risque de l’assureur. Tous les pays européens ont par conséquent adopté des règles sur les obligations d’informations des demandeurs d’assurances. On trouve des règles équivalentes dans les Principes du droit européen du contrat d’assurance (PDECA). A condition que le processus politique et juridique européen qui s’y rapporte atteigne un bon résultat, cet instrument optimal offrira aux parties contractantes une alternative à la réglementation des contrats d’assurance nationaux et transfrontaliers. Le present article examine les règles d’obligations d’informations du PDECA et les compare aux règles correspondantes en droit actuel scandinave (norvégien, suédois et danois). L’objectif de cet article est double: étudier l’impact du PDECA sur les contrats d’assurance scandinaves et commenter le PDCEA dans la perpective scandinave.
