Cross-border commercial litigation do we need permanent European commercial court

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


September 2018 a European Parliament stud, titled Building Competence in Commercial Law in the Member States' inter alia launched the initiative to install a brand new "European' Commercial Court (ECC). This ECC aims at adjudicating cross-border commercial disputes as 'optional' court operating complementary, to court proceedings in EU Member State courts. This contribution attempts to analyse versatile issues in respect of the institutional legal basis of a future ECC under the TFEU as well
as its main characteristics, and, furthermore, matters concerning conflict of laws (choice of forum, proper law of the contract national laws and Contract Principles, recognition and enforcement of ECC judgments) and substantive law related questions. Any draft proposal text for an ECC Regulation so far missing 'impressions' rather than conclusions can be drawn from this inquiry.
