Jurisdiction: international claims, Brexit, and the pitfalls for professionals
In this podcast, Paul Mitchell QC explains the rules for allocating jurisdiction in professional liability cases before and after Brexit.
This podcast looks at professional liability claims brought in England but which have a cross-border element. Listeners will follow how to found or resist jurisdiction in England where the defendant is situated in another jurisdiction, either within the current UK, within the current EU, or anywhere in the rest of the world; and how the rules are affected by Brexit. Paul also looks at the exposure of professionals to future claims arising from the way they handle cross-border litigation during the current period of uncertainty regarding Brexit.
