The Revised Lugano Convention from a Swiss Perspective, European Business Law Review, Vol. 20, Issue 4/2009 (with Prof. Rodrigo Rodriguez), pp. 579-590
The broadly known Brussels Convention has for a very long time had a monopoly on issues related to jurisdiction and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters for the EC Member States. Following the success of the Brussels Convention, the Lugano Convention was adopted twenty years later, i.e. in 1988, as its counterpart for matters arising between and EC Member State and an EFTA Member State (except Lichtenstein) as well as between EFTA Member States alone.
