Law/Patents - Insurance / reklamationsplikt
Swedish term or phrase: göras på sin spets.
Hi - I am wondering if this phrase has any more significant beyond "to be taken care of". I can't seem to find much reference for it. It appears as follows in a legal opinion regarding when an insurer's duty to give notice of limitation of liability. Thanks for your help!


Om emellertid XXX, i strid med den i föregående avsnitt anförda ståndpunkten, skulle anses ha fått sådan kännedom som krävs för att en skyldighet att reklamera ska uppkomma redan den DD MM YYYY ställs frågan om hur snabbt en sådan reklamation måste göras på sin spets.

Explanation:
In your example "ställs frågan om hur snabbt en sådan reklamation måste göras på sin spets" the important phrase is "ställs XXX på sin spets" (i.e. XXX = "frågan om hur snabbt en sådan reklamation måste göras").
My suggested target term is for the source term "ställs på sin spets"
