Predicting the outcome of Brexit is no easier now than it was two years ago. But whatever comes about, there is a real prospect that after 29 March 2019, the Brussels Regulation regime will be history for the UK with significant consequences for the enforcement of English judgments in Europe. An immediate question is whether jurisdiction and choice of law agreements need to be revised. We cannot promise that things will be clearer by 14 March, but the outlook will certainly be different. It is an opportune time to review.
Our briefing will cover:
- An overview on jurisdiction and choice of law agreements and why they are so important.
- A look at the impact of Brexit (Deal or No Deal) on:
– Choice of law clauses
– Choice of jurisdiction clauses
– The enforcement of English court judgments in Europe.
Who should attend?
All those involved with international contracts.
