Private international law

Private international law overview

We have significant expertise in international litigation and arbitration commenced in England and in complex cross-border cases giving rise to questions of private international law.

We are experienced in challenging the jurisdiction of the English court and in seeking anti-suit injunctions in relation to proceedings brought in foreign courts.   We advise on service out of the jurisdiction and make applications for permission in respect of the same. Equally, we are experienced in advising on the law governing contractual and non-contractual obligations.

We advise on the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in England and offshore, and on obtaining documents and/or testimony for use in proceedings in other jurisdictions.
