The parties entered into three standstill agreements, the third of which expired on 30 November 2016. On 1 December 2016, the applicants charged the defendant. The defendants argued that the claims were time-barred. Indeed, there may be many cases where there is already a standstill agreement, where it is now necessary to examine whether proceedings should be initiated and, if so, whether the reasons for that delay are considered justified by the Court of First Instance. If you are currently subject to a standstill agreement, you are certainly well advised to move forward and start the procedure immediately. .
