This virtual classroom seminar will consider the outcome of the Supreme Court Case FS Cairo (Nile Plaza) v Brownlie and consider the impact of the judgment on cross-border personal injury claims.

This live session will explore the practical steps required to bring a claim in England or Wales following an incident abroad and focus on the various mechanisms of CPR Part 6 that allow the English Courts’ jurisdiction to be argued.

Discussion will focus on the ‘tort gateway’ and consider other factors of importance once the English Courts’ jurisdiction has been established - including forum non conveniens arguments and enforcement of judgments.

You will have the opportunity to explore practical examples with the speaker and ask questions.
