Serving a Claim Form Out of the Jurisdiction - Post Brexit
This course examines the methods of service of a claim form issued in the courts of England or Wales on defendants outside the jurisdiction now that EU regulations no longer apply.
The ability of a claimant to issue and serve a claim form outside England and Wales will usually require prior permission to be granted by the court, although in a limited number of situations this is not necessary.
With the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020 significant changes have occurred to the practice serving a claim form abroad. We explain the latest position and what it means for litigation practitioners involved in disputes before English or Welsh courts with a non-domestic party.
