Issues involving the conflict of laws arise in all our practice areas. Members of Devereux have extensive experience of disputes involving jurisdictional questions, the determination of applicable law in the context of contractual and non-contractual obligations and the recognition of foreign judgments or awards. Our work in this field includes jurisdiction races and applications for anti-suit injunctions and freezing orders.
Members of Devereux also act as experts in English law in claims litigated in foreign jurisdictions, providing written opinions, advising clients in conference or giving oral evidence. Senior members of chambers also act as arbitrators and mediators both in England and Wales and in a diverse variety of overseas jurisdictions.
