20 Essex Street launches new jurisdiction and conflict of laws blog and toolkit

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

Keeping up to date with decisions on jurisdiction and applicable law can be challenging. So too can navigating the various EU and English rules.  

20 Essex Street has launched a new microsite to address these issues. The site, ‘Jurisdiction and Conflict of Laws – where to fight and by what rules’ is written by barrister members of chambers based both in London and Singapore. 

The site’s blog offers case notes and analysis on developments in arbitration and litigation. It focusses particularly on disputes about which law should be applied to any dispute and the forum (which court or arbitration tribunal) before which the dispute should be resolved.    

The site’s ‘toolkit’ section has been designed to help solicitors and in house counsel navigate through these issues under English law. It contains information on legislation, flow charts and some introductory FAQs. It offers an easily accessible foundation to the complex conflict of laws issues discussed in the blog.

Blog founder Josephine Davies comments: "20 Essex Street has a well established reputation for private international law. In setting up the blog, we hope to share that expertise with clients in an easily accessible format."

Alex Layton QC, senior member of 20 Essex Street and recognised as a leading expert on private international law issues, adds: "This blog provides a handy practical resource for litigators in an area that is often discussed only in high level academic terms. The issues that arise out of the cases and problems discussed are relevant for all commercial litigators."
