Article 8 amends Section 3 of the Act to permit United Kingdom courts, in ascertaining the meaning or effect of any provision of the Brussels Convention or the accession conventions, to consider the report on the Greek accession convention drawn up by two eminent Greek academic lawyers. Where a contract is silent on the issue of applicable law and jurisdiction, either party to a claim (or the court may at its own discretion) raise an issue of forum non conveniens, commonly referred to as the ‘appropriate forum’ or ‘proper place’ doctrine.

RAKIA believes that Massaad and Mikadze grossly abused the trust that had been placed in them and acted in serious breach of their fiduciary duties owed to the RAKIA entities over which they exercised control, embezzling huge sums for their personal benefit. The 2005 Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements still applies to the UK (without interruption) from its original entry into force date of 1 October 2015. A similar exception applies as with the case consumer contracts in that the employer and employee can agree otherwise once the dispute has arisen or where they had agreed to allow the employee to bring proceedings in some other court (CJJA section 15(C)(6)).

As yet, however there is uncertainty if that will happen and parties contemplating bringing a claim against a defendant located outside the UK should be mindful of the rules described above.

If the other party is domiciled overseas, no permission is required to serve out of the jurisdiction (CPR Rule 6.Please also list any non-financial associations or interests (personal, professional, political, institutional, religious or other) that a reasonable reader would want to know about in relation to the submitted work. One remaining case where no permission is required is when the defendant is in a country where the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements of 2005 (‘the 2005 Hague Convention’) is in force (CPR Rule 6.

He is singled out for his exceptional legal ability having been consistently described as “extremely bright…always does a first class job” (Legal 500 2021), “extremely intelligent” (Legal 500 2018), “exceptionally talented” (Chambers and Partners 2013) and “one to watch” (Chambers and Partners 2016). Text of the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act 1982 as in force today (including any amendments) within the United Kingdom, from legislation.

The UK’s request to accede to the Convention has to be approved by all EU-member states by April 2021. The amended 2019 Regulations also include savings provisions that have the effect of preserving the 2007 Lugano Convention (and the 1968 Brussels Convention) for cases that were ongoing at the end of the transition period. This instrument amended the Rome I and Rome II Regulations as retained by the EU Withdrawal Act 2018 so that they operate effectively as domestic law and made amendments to other related legislation.

Brexit altered the legal relationships between the UK and the EU, affecting as described the service of documents in English legal proceedings on defendants in the EU and other Western European countries. Convoy applied for a freezing injunction against Dr Cho in the British Virgin Islands ( BVI) and sought permission to serve the application out of the jurisdiction. You can find further information regarding our expertise, experience and team on our Commercial Litigation pages.Mrs Justice Rose found that RAKIA had established a good arguable case in relation to its substantive claims of fraudulent misappropriation of assets by Mikadze, an arguable case that all of the English LLPs were Mikadze’s creatures and that there was a real risk that the LLPs/Mikadze would dissipate their assets. From 1 January 2021 however, the above position no longer applies and claimants in such cases, having claims issued after that date, will have to seek the court’s permission to serve documents in their proceedings on defendants in those countries. In granting permission for service out of the jurisdiction, the court will set out the time within which the defendant has to take certain steps, like filing an acknowledgment of service or a defence, or any other document.
