Serving a Claim Form Out of the Jurisdiction - Post Brexit
This virtual classroom seminar examines the difficult territory of service out of the jurisdiction once we leave the EU.
The session is aimed at dispute lawyers representing claimants wishing to pursue claims against non-UK defendants or overseas defendants challenging service on them.
December 2020 marks the end of the Brexit process. Whether new agreements will be put in place between the UK and the EU remains moot at this point. Starting with the impact of the EU Exit Regulations on the service of documents and taking of evidence in civil matters, the session will explain the latest position and what it means for litigation practitioners involved in disputes before English or Welsh courts with a non-domestic party.
