The final outcome of the Brexit is unclear, but there is no doubt that it will have consequences that will be felt in international trade relations. Suppose you supply goods or services to the United Kingdom. Or you are about to enter into a partnership with a foreign company. In international trade contracts, parties often opt for the application of English law and the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts, regardless of whether the parties are actually established in the United Kingdom. The Brexit has potential implications for disputes arising over the terms of such contracts and the resolution of those disputes.
