Seasoned judgment enforcement lawyers Andrew Stafford QC and James Chapman-Booth offered their thoughts on an attractive option for UK parties looking to enforce a cross-border judgment in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The commentary, published in Law 360 UK, looks at the latest convention adopted by the Hague Conference on Private International Law, or HCCH, comparing and contrasting its provisions with existing European judgment recognition and enforcement networks.
“The [Hague] convention could provide to the U.K. some useful, but not comprehensive, alternatives to the EU regimes which it would lose in a no-deal Brexit,” Stafford QC and Chapman-Booth write. “Is it an interesting and potentially exciting project? Clearly. A ‘game-changer’? Well, maybe.”
