Here you will find case scenarios from our pool of experience. Perhaps you have similiar questions.
Regardless of what your questions are, we will take the utmost care in finding the solutions that fit your individual legal matters.

Facts: In the course of an internal audit of a large concern, it comes to light that there were smooth payments made to a consultant in the Middle East in the aggregate amount of USD 250,000. The background is unclear. The consultant was hired locally and was not subjected to third party due diligence (TPDD). The management of the subsidiary reports via telephone that the consultant supposedly provided valuable support and other “technical” services in obtaining a significant contract. Everything would be legal, the headquarters should not worry.

Action Required: The management of a corporation or a partnership is legally required to investigate such suspicious facts, to examine them carefully and to prevent damage to the company. Furthermore, as part of its legal duty, they must organise and supervise the company so that there are no violations of law such as bribes are paid either to public officials or private individuals. The management is subject to a duty to organise. They must establish, supervise and maintain a compliance system designed for loss prevention and risk control. The extent required must be determined on an individual basis. Factors to consider are the type, size and organisation of the company, the regulations to be observed, the geographical presence as well as suspected cases in the past (majority opinion in jurisprudence and case law, see District Court (LG) München I, decision dated 10 December 2013 – 5 HK O 1387/10 “Siemens/Neubürger”).

In this case, the fact that there had been no TPDD of the consultant in question is already alarming – an indication of deficits in the compliance management system. This and similar situations require in each case a thorough and legally sound explanation. Further consequences may have to be carried out (e.g. personnel changes and or assertion of claims for damages against the executive bodies, see German Federal Supreme Court (BGH), decision dated 21 April 1997 – II ZR 175/95 “ARAG/Garmenbeck”). Complex negotiations with D&O insurers might follow.

Recommendation: Contact COMINDIS. We have comprehensive practical experience in the area of Compliance. We support you in the full process, during the necessary investigation of facts, selection and implementation of required measures and implementation or improvement of your compliance system.

Facts: In an internal audit, the suspicion arises that your company may have collected unlawful funds. Typical examples are excessive invoices to contractual partners.

Action Required: The management of a company is legally obligated to investigate such suspicions, to examine them carefully and to prevent damage to the company (for more details, see scenario “Compliance Investigations and Compliance Management System” [INSERT LINK]). If excessive invoices were issued, the employees responsible could have committed the criminal offence of fraud (Section 263 of German Criminal Code (StGB)). Irrespective of the necessary investigation of facts and further required measures, there is a risk for directors and officers to commit the criminal offence of money laundering (Section 261 of German Criminal Code) if the unlawfully collected funds are later transferred within the concern or to third parties.

This risk also exists if the illegal funds were mixed with legal income (i.e. an account balance is composed of legal and illegal funds). The entire commingled funds may be a suitable object for money laundering (see German Federal Supreme Court (BGH), decision dated 20 May 2015 – 1 StR 33/15).

The matter becomes even more sensitive in view of the recent reform of the criminal offence of money laundering. On 14 October 2020, the German Federal Government published a draft law to improve the fight against money laundering. The proposed new version of Section 261 of German Criminal Code provides for a significant expansion of the offence. According to the old version, a prerequisite for the commission of money laundering is that the object of the offence derives from one of the catalogue offences listed in Section 261 para 1 sentence 2 of German Criminal Code (such as serious criminal offences or the expressly named less serious criminal offences, e.g. corruption offences, narcotics offences, and tax offences, as well as certain qualified fraud offences). In deviation from this, in the future, for the commission of money laundering it will be sufficient if an asset originates from any offence under core or ancillary criminal law.

Recommendations: Contact COMINDIS. Due to our comprehensive practical experience in the area of compliance, we are your reliable partner in such and similar cases. We support you during the necessary investigation of the facts, the selection and implementation of required measures as well as the implementation of a compliance system.

Facts: On one of your plant construction projects in Eastern Europe, a customer threatens to draw a performance guarantee payable on first demand. He alleges defects in the plant. The customer refuses to accept the plant; although, he has been operating it for several months without complaint and there are obviously no serious defects. The bank contacts you and informs you that it will pay out the bond in the amount of €15 million to the customer in three days.

Action Required: The drawing of the bond might be unlawful. There are cases in which the drawing of a first demand bond may be an abuse of rights (“unfair calling”) (for further details see Decker in Legal Handbook Plant Engineering, Hrsg. Bock/Zons, 2.ed. 2020, Chapter V.7).

Recommendation: Immediate action is required. To avoid a negative impact on your company, you should contact us immediately. If appropriate, we apply for interim legal measures for you. Let us advise you. 

Facts: In one of your plant construction projects in South America with a contract price of €55 million, there are significant disruptions in the construction progress and a cost overrun in the amount of €10 million. In addition, your customer holds you responsible as the contractor for a delay even though he himself has not fulfilled significant duties to cooperate in the construction process (e.g. in the release of engineering documents). He demands liquidated damages in the amount of 0.2% of the contract price per diem up to the amount of 15% of the contract price and threatens to stop any payment.

Action Required: As in any plant engineering construction project, a careful analysis of the facts and legal review is required. Who caused what and when? How are the disruptions and the failed cooperation documented? Has the contractor given the customer notices about the disruptions or can that be done at a later date?

In addition, one should keep an eye on the dispute resolution mechanisms. Is there a Dispute Adjudication Board that accompanies the project or that can be formed on an ad hoc basis? This usually leads to faster and more cost-effective decisions.

Recommendation: Contact COMINDIS. We have years of practical experience in construction disruptions and the defense and enforcement of resulting claims, in state courts, arbitration proceedings and on the basis of other dispute resolution mechanisms.

Facts: Your sales department proposes a new project in Benelux. The terms of the contract call for a very tight schedule and substantial liquidated damages for delay. When you ask what provisions have been made for delays caused by COVID-19, your sales department references the force majeur clause. This is supposed to regulate circumstances for which neither party is responsible, they argue.

Action Required: Is that correct? Would it then be advisable to approve the project? The answer to these questions requires a thorough review of the force majeure clause. Many clauses contain a conclusive list of force majeure events. If a pandemic is not listed, it may not be considered a force majeure event. Furthermore, most force majeure events contain an element of unforeseeability. This means that only circumstances that were not foreseeable at the time the contract was concluded would be considered force majeure events. Great caution is required here! In many countries, COVID-19-related restrictions have been imposed. Even in Benelux with a second wave of COVID-19 infections, corresponding restrictions on public life have been put in place. Would the intended force majeure clause apply in this situation?

Recommendation: Contact us. We have years of practical experience with the common clauses in plant engineering construction law and other project contracts.
