The recast Brussels Regulation has introduced significant changes to the EU rules on jurisdiction and the enforcement of judgments for proceedings commenced from 10 January 2015, as well as clarifying the scope of the exclusion of arbitration from the Brussels regime. Adam Johnson, Anna Pertoldi, Nicholas Peacock and Hannah Ambrose have published an article in PLC Magazine, The recast Brussels Regulation: Implications for commercial parties, which considers the key changes and the areas in which uncertainty remains.

This article was first published in the January/February 2015 issue of PLC Magazine – click here for the PLC magazine home page.

We have also published a “handy client guide” to jurisdiction under the recast Brussels Regulation, featuring a decision tree to help determine whether the English court will have jurisdiction over a dispute under the new rules. Click here to download a copy.
