A Comparative Analysis of Commercial Dispute Resolution in Ireland and Canada

Events 2 minute read

Join us on Tuesday, September 5th in our Toronto office as we host an interactive exchange on this topic together with The Consulate General of Ireland, Toronto and Ireland for Law.

Moderated by Gemma Healy-Murphy, the panel will focus on a range of current commercial dispute resolution and access to justice issues affecting Canadian businesses that operate, or are considering operating in Ireland and/or the UK, including:

  • Exploring Ireland as the EU jurisdiction of choice for contracts and international dispute resolution in the wake of Brexit;
  • The impact of the UK’s failed bid to accede to the Lugano Convention whereby UK judgments are not automatically recognisable and enforceable across the EU; and,
  • Key considerations for Canadian businesses in cross-border dispute resolution in the UK.
