New legal year in London, new blog

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

At the start of this year (on 10 January 2015), the revised EU Regulation on jurisdiction (Regulation (EU) 1215/2012, Brussels I Recast) came into force. It lays down rules for the determination of jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters in the EU. Like its predecessor (Council Regulation (EC) 44/2001) Brussels I Recast does not cover all areas. A notable exception is arbitration. The effect of this exclusion is of particular interest in its impact on the ability of EU courts to grant anti-arbitration injunctions. Sara Masters QC and Belinda McRae explore this in their post commenting on the CJEU’s decision earlier this year in Gazprom C-536/13.

Prompted by these decisions, we thought it was time to set up a blog about jurisdictional and applicable law issues. To coincide with the start of the legal year in London, it’s here!

We’ve also included some useful resources in our toolkit section. You can find out more about the site, its authors and 20 Essex Street chambers in the about section.
