The Brussels I Regulation Recast 

The Brussels I Regulation has undergone a lengthy review process, resulting in Regulation (EU) 1215/2012 of 12 December 2012 on Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Judgments in Civil and Commercial Matters (Recast). The provisions of the new Regulation apply from 10 January 2015. This book provides a commentary on the Recast Regulation. It contains an article-by-article commentary on all provisions of the Recast Regulation with reference to the existing case law of the European Court of Justice and leading national decisions, and provides additional focus on the newly introduced changes, in particular to the provisions on lis pendens and the recognition and enforcement of judgments.
