The Brussels I Review Proposal

10th February 2011

On December 14, 2010 the European Commission has published its proposal to review the Brussels I Regulation on jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters. This proposal suggests various changes of the current Brussels I regime. Those changes are discussed by an international expert panel during this one-day seminar.
Topics include the abolition of exequatur, choice of court agreements, lis pendens, provisional (including protective measures), improved access to justice, the arbitration exception, the extension of the regulation's jurisdiction rules to third States defendants and the relation of the new regime to the Lugano Convention.
