Businesses may need to change their maritime dispute settlement strategies due to uncertainties created by Brexit for recognition and enforcement of the judgments in the area. The court processes or ordinary arbitration methods may not be available to solve all questions. For this reason there is a Belgian proposal on a Brexit tribunal. This seminar will explore Brexit and dispute settlement in maritime matters.
This briefing is suitable for business representatives as well as legal counsel.
