Recodification of Private Law: Finally “as amended”!

Mgr. Jitka Sytařová, LL.M.

Three years ago, there was a large change in the Czech private law.

Předběžná opatření v judikatuře Ústavního soudu aneb postrádá návrh na nařízení předběžného opatření při respektování práva na spravedlivý proces smysl?

JUDr. Ondřej Rathouský / Mgr. Mária Piačková

Aby žalovaný nemohl nenapravitelně změnit poměry mezi účastníky dříve, než o nich bude soudem rozhodnuto, popřípadě aby nemohl urychleně naplnit obavu, že výkon konečného rozhodnutí bude ohrožen, je soud oprávněn na návrh žalobce nařídit předběžné opatření. […]

Je právní úprava fikce uznání nároku a rozsudku pro uznání skutečně tak přísná?

JUDr. Ondřej Rathouský / Mgr. Ing. Lenka Charvátová

Pokud obecný soud vyzve žalovaného výzvou podle § 114b o.s.ř., aby se vyjádřil k žalobě, a žalovaný tak bez vážného důvodu neučiní,[1] rozhodne soud rozsudkem pro uznání. Tímto způsobem soudy postupují již téměř šestnáct let. Ačkoliv rozsudků pro uznání byly vydány již stovky tisíc, donedávna neexistoval jednotný pohled na situace, kdy žalovaný kvalifikovanou výzvu nesplnil […]

Úskalí nabytí zástavního práva. Přináší nový občanský zákoník nové naděje?

Mgr. Jitka Sytařová, LL.M. / Mgr. Marie Zámečníková

Přestože nový občanský zákoník po svém přijetí čelil (dodnes rezonující) kritice, nelze mu upřít, že mnohá témata, která byla dříve jen zdlouhavě vyjasňována judikaturou, postavil prostřednictvím výslovné zákonné úpravy na jisto. Příkladem budiž problematika nabytí vlastnického práva k nemovitosti od „nevlastníka“, která se stala předmětem dlouholetého sporu mezi Ústavním soudem a Nejvyšším soudem. […]

Ein Überblick über den Anwendungsbereich des UN-Kaufrechts im internationalen Geschäftsverkehr

Dr. jur. Ernst Giese / Jan-Hendrik Jurkat

Schließen Unternehmen grenzübergreifend Verträge, bestimmen regelmäßig Rechtswahlklauseln das auf den Vertrag anzuwendende Recht. Die Anwendbarkeit nationalen Rechts beschränkt die Leistungsverpflichtungen auf bekanntes Recht, die Erfolgsaussichten im Streitfall sind besser einzuschätzen. Doch scheitern kleinere Unternehmen nicht selten an einer rechtssicheren Formulierung, wenn sie die Anwendbarkeit des UN-Kaufrechts nicht bedacht haben oder ausschließen wollten, indem das Recht […]
