Overview

With the expansion of the European Union since its inception, EU cross border litigation has become increasingly common and with it a host of issues that are peculiar to this form of litigation. Of all those issues jurisdiction has proved the most difficult and controversial. David Joseph QC in his work on this area states that ‘Frequently more time and effort is expanded in resolving the question of jurisdiction than any other issue’. As the EU continues to implement its overriding policy to harmonise and standardise the rules in various areas of civil litigation before the courts of member states it has never been so important for those involved in this area to be fully appraised of the applicable rules. This seminar will explore the jurisdictional rules for cross-border disputes as contained in Regulation 44/2001 (‘Brussels I’) and Regulation 2215/2012 (The Brussels I Re-cast Regulation). This program will be of interest and relevance to any legal practitioner whose practice encompasses cross-border litigation within the territory of the EU. It will also be relevant to any corporate manager, executive or business person who has dealings with companies in any EU member state.
