Jurisdiction and the KapMuG

  • Thijs BostersEmail author


Various connecting factors can be used in order to confer jurisdiction to a certain court (e.g. the court parties choose in a choice of forum agreement, the domicile of the defendant, the Erfolgsort/Handlungsort, the place of performance of an obligation). In order to determine the compentent court in a KapMuG procedure, these connecting factors must be put in perspective with the particularities of the KapMuG procedure (i.e. one party’s claim is used as an example for all other claims). This chapter sets out whether and how jurisdiction can be conferred to a certain court with respect to a KapMuG procedure. In addition, it is analysed whether the way jurisdiction can be conferred to a certain court is in line with the goals of both collective redress and the Brussels I-bis Regulation.
