How Will No-Deal Brexit Change Cross-Border Regulations?

By in

Several legal experts have published printed guidance in the form of a circular regarding all potential changes that will ensue in cross-border litigation law that will follow a no-deal Brexit. It notes that Rome 1 & 2 will remain in force in the UK, so there will not be any changes to the regulations that govern choice of law or proper law.

The 2005 Hague Convention has been ratified to come into force in the UK immediately upon the UKs departure from the EU, in order for EU Member States to be able to loosely uphold exclusive jurisdiction clauses to legally enforce UK court rulings in the event that no deal is arranged. Though not non-exclusive or asymmetric jurisdiction clauses and perhaps making allowances for contracts entered into before Brexit.
