Lawyer commercial law Antwerp (Belgium) – Commercial law controls all the legal rules regarding relations between traders in the broad sense of the word (independent traders, companies, financiers …).
Commercial law requires specific legal rules modelled on the singularity of trade transactions. Trade transactions are indeed frequent and require a larger pitch than civil transactions. Credit and good faith form the core and leverage of commercial life.
Thus, traders should expeditiously protest invoices, if not they are deemed to be accepted. As a trader you will also want to ensure that customers or clients pay your invoices on time, but you do not know a fast and effective manner to get your money into your account.
Commercial law has several sub-disciplines, each interwoven with special legislation. As a dealer or consumer you might be familiar with the Trade Practices Act. For example, you cannot tolerate a competitor distorting fair competition with deceptive advertising.
As a consumer you wish to be informed properly before you buy a holiday from your tour operator. Just because your tour operator formulates a proposal does not mean you will become immediately bound. The creation of such a travel contract is specified in special legislation.
Is your business established in a rented property then the law on commercial property applies. Several questions may arise regarding the execution of work in your business, the increase of rent or its termination.
In times of crisis as a trader you may also have to contend with (temporary) payment or credit problems. You may be called upon to submit a financial plan in the context of a procedure under the Business Continuity Act or you will be sued into bankruptcy.
