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


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. 

The speakers look at what happens when you have a judgment which you want to enforce. Issues under consideration include:

  • 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 discuss a case study exploring the issues that arise from the change of regimes for jurisdiction and enforcement
