The presentation attempts to capture some of the most striking questions posed by cross-border capital market litigation. These questions are studied using as background the rules of European private international law. The purpose of the presentation was not only to provide information on these rules, but also to verify whether the application of these rules indeed raise difficult issues and, if yes, whether changes are needed.

In this paper I attempt to offer a legal analysis of recent legislations adopted in the United Kingdom and Belgium which aim to limit the possibility for sovereign debt creditors to obtain a judgment and collect on what is due to them under sovereign bonds. The paper starts with a review of various instances of holdout creditor litigation, seeking to explain the distinctive features of such litigation. The paper next turns to the various initiatives undertaken in different jurisdictions to curb the activities of so-called 'vulture funds'. The legislation adopted in Belgium and the UK is specifically examined. In a second part, the paper offers a more general analysis of the need for such specific legislation. The need to intervene at national level to restrict the activities of distressed debt funds is questioned, on the basis of recent evolutions both in the sovereign debt market (introduction of collective action clauses) and in the legal framework of such debt (among others the tightening up of the enforcement immunity granted to central bank assets). On this basis, it is submitted that creditor litigation is more a nuisance than an obstacle. In a final section, the paper review the compatibility of the UK Debt Relief Act 2010 with human rights standards, and in particular with Article 1 of the 1st Protocol to the European Convention on Human Rights.

Family law has undergone a radical change over the last twenty years or so. While marriage previously dominated the field, leaving very little room for non-married couples, whose situation was mainly characterised by the absence of firm legal principles, the recent decades have seen the rise of new legal institutions affording a measure of legal protection to couples outside marriage. This has coincided with the desire to ensure that same-sex couples could find a place within the law. As a result, the landscape of family law has profoundly changed. If one examines the current stand of the law, it becomes clear that following this evolution, a few common points stand out while substantial differences remain. Whereas a large number of countries have created the possibility to register unions different from marriage, not all of them have done so. Some countries have shown indifference to the idea, other have demonstrated clear reluctance, sometimes even outright rejection. Among the countries which have created 'partnerships' and other new forms of relationships, the diversity is obvious, with some countries offering a close copy of the marriage, while other have opted for a less favourable regime. Finally, a handful of countries have opened up the possibility of marriage to same-sex partners. From the outset this evolution has been closely studied from the private international law perspective. In view of the ever increasing mobility of persons within the EU and beyond the conflict of laws treatment of same-sex marriages and partnerships is indeed far from a purely theoretical concern. The cross-border aspects of these relations have already been documented in a number of fundamental studies. Some years down the road, it appears useful to pause and wonder whether the difficulties and problems uncovered in these studies have been resolved. To this end, this paper intends to offer a general review of the private international law of same-sex relationships, focusing on the situation in Member States of the European Union. Because of the number of countries whose laws will be examined, we intend to adopt a bottom-up approach, starting not so much from general questions and problems, but rather from a close examination of the private international law rules pertaining to same-sex relationships (marriages and partnerships) in Europe. From this examination it will be possible to determine whether and on what issues there exists a consensus among the countries concerned on the treatment of same-sex relationships. This will be done by looking first at the possibility for same-sex partners to access a specific status. In a second stage, the enquiry will focus on the consequences arising out of a particular status. From there the paper intends to identify the difficulties arising out of the lack of consensus. In a final chapter, some thoughts will be offered on the way forward – in particular assessing the merits of a global or European solution to tackle cross-border recognition problems. [less ▲]

This paper offers a review of the main private international law issues arising from cross-border franchise relationships, with a focus on drafting issues. The paper first reviews the issues linked to dispute resolution, emphasizing the need to provide dispute resolution provision in the agreement. It then turns to the rules relevant in case of dispute, with a focus on the potential impact of certain mandatory rules. In a final section, the paper discusses the process of determining which law applies to a cross-border franchise agreement in the absence of a choice of law by the parties. [less ▲]

This book which is the result of the joint efforts of 5 young authors who combine academic expertise with practical experience of international family law disputes, takes a practical approach to the most common international family law issues which may arise in Belgium. Looking at recent case law and developments in both the EU and the Hague Conference, the book offers students, practitioners and interested readers insight into the cross-border relationships between spouses and partners and between parents and children. In order to offer the reader the most practical information, the book is framed around 50 practical cases, inspired by case law and the practical experience of the authors. These cases are discussed with a view to outline the reasoning which must be followed to determine which court has jurisdiction, which law will apply and how to cope with a foreign judgment. Among the issues discussed by the authors are child abduction, cross-border adoption, foreign surrogacy agreements, recognition of foreign repudiation. In analyzing these issues, the authors take into account the latest case law on international instruments such as the Brussels IIbis Regulation and various Hague Conventions. [less ▲]

Cette présentation, destinée à un événement privé, tente d'offrir une synthèse des règles de droit international privé pertinentes dans le contexte des litiges intéressant les marchés financiers. L'accent est mis en particulier sur les litiges relatifs aux offres de titres. Les questions classiques de droit international privé (compétence internationale, droit applicable) sont étudiées en prenant appui sur les règles européennes de droit international privé. La perspective choisie est celle d'une application en Belgique de ces règles. La perspective se veut pédagogique plus que scientifique. [less ▲]

In this paper, I attempt to demonstrate that while spouses may make arrangements for post-divorce alimony and determine which law will govern such arrangement, uncertainty remains within the EU as to the enforceability of such arrangements, especially since it is not yet known whether courts will enforce a choice of law made by spouses in such agreements. I also argue that the uncertainty is, however, limited and that in most cases, there is reason to believe that courts will indeed enforce such agreements. [less ▲]
