CARRASCO DELGADO, Nicolás. Forum Shopping and Chilean legislation about creditor collective action. Revista de Derecho de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso [online]. 2016, n.47, pp.179-215. ISSN 0718-6851.

In this work, we will explore the phenomenon of forum shopping strictly from the perspective of procedural law. It has normally been associated with the option available to litigants to choose a court to resort to, in such a manner that they will prefer the court which resolves best serves their interests. However, under certain assumptions, the concept of forum shopping can be extended not only to the choice of court but also to choice of legal proceedings. This occurs in the presence of collective action on the part of creditors, i.e. when there are multiple subjects with credit rights over a common debtor. Under such an assumption, the creditors enjoy different legal avenues to which they may resort (individual debt recovery proceedings and collective insolvency proceedings). We will seek to investigate the choices available to creditors and debtors between such legal avenues in Chilean legislation from the perspectives of efficiency and incentive.
