Debating the shape of commercial dispute resolution, post-Brexit

Next Friday, the EU Bar Association (EUBA) will hold its annual conference on the topic of commercial dispute resolution in Europe after Brexit. 

At 2pm on 5 April 2019 the Dublin Dispute Resolution Centre at Distillery Building, will hear a debate on the future shape of commercial dispute resolution as varying jurisdictions make ready their legal frameworks.


The Legal Services Brexit Initiative led by the Bar of Ireland and the Law Society of Ireland is promoting the Irish legal system in the context of Brexit.

France, Germany and The Netherlands have taken steps to promote their legal systems for commercial dispute resolution post Brexit and have each created commercial courts for the resolution of disputes in English.

Attorney General, Seamus Woulfe will be joined by representatives of the Chamber for International Commercial Disputes of the Frankfurt Regional Court, the Netherlands Commercial Court and the Chamber for International Disputes of the Paris Commercial Court to discuss and debate the merits of our respective court systems for post-Brexit dispute resolution.

Protection of common law

Advocate General Gerard Hogan (pictured) of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) will speak on protecting the common law in the EU.

The debate will be chaired by Justice Caroline Costello of the Court of Appeal.
