Contact

Contact with chambers should be made through the Practice Management Team. They are happy to discuss client requirements and provide further information on such matters as the expertise and experience of individual members, fees, working practices and languages spoken. We have members able to work in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, Greek and Chinese (Mandarin).

Outside working hours, a member of our team is always available to be contacted on matters of an urgent nature. Contact should be made using the Chambers main number or email.

For our Singapore office, for client enquiries please contact our BD Director, Asia Pacific, Lara Quie and for all other queries please contact Lynn Quek. Out of office hours calls will automatically be diverted to our clerking team in London.

Jurisdiction, conflicts and enforcement

Much of the work undertaken by Twenty Essex has an international element and members are experts in issues of jurisdiction, conflict and enforcement.

Whenever a dispute involves more than one country, questions are likely to arise about the applicable law, the courts with competent jurisdiction, the enforcement of judgments or awards, or international procedural questions of service or evidence. This is an increasingly complex area of the law.

Twenty Essex is experienced in dealing with matters involving:

  • Brussels I Regulation (and the associated Brussels and Lugano Conventions) on jurisdiction and enforcement of judgments.
  • Rome I and Rome II Regulations on the law applicable to contracts and to non-contractual obligations.
  • English common law rules on jurisdiction and enforcement of judgments.
  • All other aspects of private international law.
  • Complex transborder jurisdiction issues in all commercial sectors.

 

Members often appear on applications for stays and injunctions. These include, in particular, applications for anti-suit injunctions and declarations concerning jurisdiction, service or enforcement of foreign judgments.

In addition to conducting litigation before the national courts at all levels, including the Supreme Court, our experience includes the conduct of litigation on these issues before the Court of Justice of the European Union.
