WPP HOLDINGS ITALY SRL (2) WPP 2005 LTD (3) BERKELEY SQUARE HOLDING BV v MARCO BENATTI (2006) [2006] EWHC 1641 (Comm)

It was held that the question of whether proceedings were correctly issued for the purposes of Council Regulation 44/2001 Art.30 had to be determined by the national law in which they were instituted. There was no doubt that the proceedings had been issued correctly according to English law and consequently the English court was the court first seised of the dispute between the parties.
