Application of EU Brussels 1 Regulation in recourse claim between insurers

25.06.2013

Finnish courts have recently had to consider the application of the EU Brussels 1 Regulation to a recourse claim between a Finnish and a German insurer which arose from a traffic accident in Germany. The district court ruled that the German courts had jurisdiction; however, referring to principles set out by European Court of Justice in its case law, the Turku Appeal Court reversed the decision.

Partners Matti Komonen and Herman Ljungberg at Hammarström Puhakka Partners, Attorneys Ltd, have written an update on this matter. The update titled “Application of EU Brussels 1 Regulation in recourse claim between insurers” has been published in the International Law Office’s newsletter.
