Abstract

The European Union's "Brussels-I Regulation" on Jurisdiction and Judgment Recognition in Civil and Commercial Matters has been revised.

The paper notes important changes dealing with choice-of-court clauses, lis pendens, weaker party protection (consumer transactions) and relating to judgment recognition (anolition of exequatur).

Keywords: European Union civil procedure, European Union jurisdiction and judgment recognition
