This stream of work relates to the legal issues relating to two party and multiparty disputes in an international context, i.e. international litigation and conflict of laws from a comparative perspective. This includes, in particular, the European and US frameworks for cross-border jurisdiction and enforcement as well as the Hague Conventions in this area. BIICLs work focuses on commercial litigation but also covers international successions and international family law as well as cross-border insolvencies and collective claims.
Recent projects cover the legal consequences of Brexit in a cross-border context as well as the new commercial court initiatives in Europe and across Asia and the Middle East.
