Critical Acclaim
‘This is undoubtedly the most complete and up-to-date commentary on the Brussels I bis Regulation, written by experts in the field, whose command is evident in the way in which the core rules of the law of European Civil Procedure are analysed. With solid theoretical foundations and an exhaustive analysis of the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union and national courts, it clearly and effectively explains how the system works in its various dimensions (international jurisdiction, parallel proceedings, recognition and enforcement of decisions) and offers solutions to the practical problems that legal practitioners may encounter. A work of the highest quality and, above all, of the greatest utility.’
– Fernando Gascón Inchausti, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain

‘This book is an absolutely essential source for anyone working with Brussels I Bis and European procedural law, whether practitioner, judge, or academic. This multi-authored commentary makes use of a pan-European range of experts with diverse professional backgrounds and exposures to different legal cultures and traditions. The editor and authors, all with expertise in comparative procedural law and private international law, reflect a sensitivity to the need to situate each Article within the development of a European procedural law. The lengthy Introduction is particularly helpful as a reference tool for the evolution of Brussels I bis, even including Brexit. The book is an invaluable resource not only for Brussels Regime novices but also for scholars of European procedural law due to the inclusion of caselaw of the CJEU/ECJ as well as a breadth of national law that enriches each chapter and deepens our understanding.’
– Louise Ellen Teitz, Roger Williams University, US

‘The go-to commentary for anyone – academics and practitioners alike – interested in the European law of transnational litigation regarding civil and commercial matters form a truly European perspective!’
– Franco Ferrari, New York University School of Law, US
