Retention of Title in and out of Insolvency

Consulting editor(s): Marcel Willems on behalf of the International Bar Association

Suppliers of goods tend to think that they have strong rights if they retain ownership of delivered goods until the purchase price has been fully paid, because disputes involving non-payment can supposedly be solved fairly easily by claiming payment in court or repossessing the goods.
