Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s)
Danish term or phrase: afholdt
The sentence in question reads "[X skal friholde Y] for sådanne krav og alle i den forbindelse afholdte udgifter, herunder advokatomkostninger[.]"

The question before the KudoZ Court is: "incurred" or "paid"?

If the former, I can see the indemnified party possibly claiming coverage for expenses incurred internally, e.g., staff time spent responding to a third party claim, or expenses incurred but not yet paid. But if it's the latter, no way, José, only amounts actually paid will be reimbursed.

Anyone have personal experience with this question?

The question before the Kudoz court was: incurred or paid. :)

But I get your point, and respectfully withdraw from the discussion, leaving it to brighter legal heads. :)

Asker: I know that's one meaning, but your response doesn't address my question.

Asker: I should probably add that Gyldendals shows "incurred" as a possibility, which gives rise to the question.

Asker: Many thanks for your extensive discussion entry. Based on that, I'm going with "paid". I think the inclusion of "incurred" by Gyldendals is a bit of a stretch, and it wasn't the first thing I thought of when I saw "afholdte" in my text.
