Cross-border Jurisdiction and Judgments after the EU Withdrawal Transition Period (A Case Study Webinar)

Location: Online via Zoom

For more than 30 years, English jurisdiction clauses and the enforcement of English judgments in the EU were regulated by EU legislation. Since the end of the Transition Period, this regime has ceased to apply. This has important implications for litigation in England; for English jurisdiction clauses; and for the enforcement of judgments.

Using a series of practical examples, this webinar considers the implications for the effectiveness of English jurisdiction clauses, the commencement of proceedings in English courts, the practical differences made by the application of common law principles to EU domiciled parties and the enforcement of English judgments in the EU.

Prof. Jonathan Harris QC (Hon.) is the general editor (with Lord Collins) of the leading work, Dicey, Morris and Collins, The Conflict of Laws. He has been instructed in numerous landmark cases around the world, including in the Supreme Court and Privy Council. Legal directories describe him as “absolutely fabulous” and having a “deep knowledge of the law; commercial, pragmatic advice; fantastic to deal with – the full package”. He is a member of the Lord Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Private International Law and has given evidence to the House of Lords EU Select Committee on the impact of Brexit. He has advised clients extensively on the impact of Brexit and spoken on the subject at events across the world.
