EU REGULATION: The case of the disappearing debt

01 April 2016  

Ivan Shiu and Giles Hutt analyse the application of EU jurisdiction rules and the judgment in Goldman Sachs International v Novo Banco SA

In the vast majority of commercial disputes, the starting point for considering jurisdiction questions is the Recast Brussels Regulation (EU 1215/2012) (the Regulation), which sets out detailed and somewhat rigid rules that courts in all EU member states must follow. (Denmark is theoretically excluded from the scope of the Regulation, but has agreed to ‘opt in’ by means of a separate agreement with the European Community (EC) – see OJ L 79/4.)
