Article 1 Protocol 1 (‘A1P1’) is the ‘blue chip’ ECHR provision when it comes to commercial public law. At heart commercial public law involves disputes over money and other commercial property whether that be in the form of a regulatory decision, or a law with adverse commercial effects. In recent years, A1P1 has, increasingly, been used to challenge the most wide-ranging public law decisions. With the advent of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights its growing potential for use in EU cases now enables commercial litigants to use the ECHR in innovative and imaginative ways to protect their commercial interests.
This seminar aims to catch the myriad of ways in which A1P1 is now being used as well as to assess its potential for the future.
