English Law & International Commercial Agreements - A Post-Brexit Update
The UK’s departure from the EU had a number of implications for commercial agreements and disputes. The way in which the UK gave effect to Brexit, the retention of EU law for certain purposes, together with transitional and new rules in respect of jurisdiction, make it important for both transactional lawyers and litigators to familiarise themselves with the new legal landscape.
At the same time, Brexit is likely to lead to more uncertainty in respect of commercial supply chains, currency fluctuations, and material adverse changes that can impact on commercial agreements. A variety of methods can be used to manage these risks through contractual arrangements.
This webinar, updated for 2021, will look at how Brexit was implemented and its effect on international commercial agreements. It will consider how to determine the applicable law and the right forum for disputes. As well as considering the position of England in respect of EU countries, it will look at England’s relationship with the other nations in the UK and with non-EU countries. It will also take stock of the potential impact on international commercial arbitration.
This webinar may be of interest to those outside of the UK who need to know how English commercial agreements operate.
