The recast Brussels Regulation introduces significant changes to the EU rules on jurisdiction and the enforcement of judgments for proceedings commenced from today, 10 January 2015 (Regulation (EU) 1215/2012).

The key practical implications for parties based both within and outside the EU are outlined in our recent post New EU jurisdiction rules apply from 10 January: Do you know where you can sue and be sued?.

We have also published a Handy client guide to jurisdiction under recast Brussels Regulation: England and Wales featuring a decision tree to help determine whether the English court will have jurisdiction over a dispute under the new rules.
