In its most recently published figures, the Commercial Court reported that some 75 per cent of the cases issued in the first quarter of 2019 had an international element, demonstrating the truly global nature of dispute resolution in the UK. However, one of the recurring questions in the legal arena since the Brexit referendum in 2016 has been whether the UK’s exit from the EU will mean that its attractiveness as a litigation centre will fade.
In this report, we look at the advantages of dispute resolution in the UK, as well as some of the nuances of our system which may trip up an international client litigating here for the first time. In our view, the UK remains a premier forum for international dispute resolution, albeit with the caveat that expertise and experience is a pre-requisite to avoid the dangers and secure a successful outcome.
We also focus on those key sectors of relevance to the international market where we anticipate significant growth in litigation and disputes management in the coming years, identifying issues and trends that are likely to generate judicial interest.
