The Bar Council is presenting the seminar in partnership with the European Circuit, Hamburg Bar Association and the Academy of European Law on the impact of Brexit on commercial dispute litigation.

Changes to the UK’s status under the EU Regulations in the area of cross-border civil and commercial law - namely the Brussels Ia, Rome I & Rome II Regulation - will have a tremendous impact on commercial dispute resolution in London. Jurisdiction agreements in favour of London can no longer rely on the argument that the judgment will be easily enforceable across Europe. The continuing validity of (choice of law) agreements might be questioned.

This seminar will offer a platform for discussion on the impact of Brexit on commercial dispute litigation, both during the transitional period and afterwards. It will include topics such as the fate of prorogation clauses in favour of English courts, choice of law agreements and the future of London as a legal hub.

The seminar has been accredited with 2.5 CPD hours.
