Details

This guidance is provided for the information of legal practitioners involved in cross-border civil and commercial cases in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal. It is not legal advice. It is not a complete statement of the law.

Practitioners should be aware that they may need to consider judgments from both the UK courts and judgments from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) where relevant, in line with the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. The circumstances of UK exit from the EU are subject to change. The information below on what happens after UK exit is relevant to a ‘no-deal’ UK exit only.

Members of the public and businesses involved in cross-border civil and commercial cases may need to seek local legal advice.
