No Deal on Jurisdiction and Enforcement – Where Does Brexit Leave Us? - Part 2

Time: 12pm BST
Venue: Zoom


What are the legal effects of Brexit on civil jurisdiction and the enforcement of judgments? Before Brexit, the applicable rules were harmonised between the UK, the EU and EFTA by Brussels Regulation (Recast) No. 1215/2012 and the Lugano Convention 2007. Those rules have now been swept away by Brexit. In this 2-part series, we review the legal framework that has taken their place and look at practical tips when dealing with these issues. 

Our panel of speakers includes Simon Rainey QC, Robert Thomas QC, Gemma Morgan and Andrew Leung. 

In Session 2 the speakers look at what happens when you have a judgment which you want to enforce. Issues under consideration will be:

  • The Hague Convention 2005: what it will do and what it (probably) won’t do.
  • How judgments from EU Member States will be enforced within the UK.
  • How UK judgments may be enforced in EU Member States

The panel will also discuss a case study exploring the issues that arise from the change of regimes for jurisdiction and enforcement
