Tim Chelmick and Hannah Daly to speak at ThoughtLeaders4 Webinar

4th November 2022
12pm - 1pm BST

4 New Square Chambers’ Tim Chelmick and Hannah Daly will join Andrew James of PCB Byrne in a webinar hosted by ThoughtLeaders4 Disputes on 4th November 2022.

The October 2022 amendments to the Civil Procedure rules have brought about significant change to the service of claims out of the jurisdiction. The ‘gateways’ included in Practice Direction 6B have undergone no fewer than 20 substantive changes with several entirely new gateways having been added. These changes come in the wake of the significant upheaval of the rules of international jurisdiction in the UK brought about by Brexit and the UK’s exit from the Brussels Regime.

In this talk the speakers will consider the impact of these amendments on the scope of the English court’s jurisdiction in civil and commercial matters and the opportunities and difficulties these changes may bring for foreign litigants in England.

Amongst other topics the panellists will cover:

  • Jurisdictional aspects of the new gateways, in particular the new gateway for information orders against non-parties to the proceedings;
  • Whether the amendments represent change or merely the codification of existing rules and practice;
  • What impact the new gateways are likely to have when it comes to challenging jurisdiction, from a claimant and defendant point of view.
