Arbitration in the Republic of Ireland after Brexit

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In light of the Brexit vote on the 23rd of June 2016, the UK will be leaving the EU and this will have a significant effect on arbitration practice in the UK. To this end, this paper firstly examines whether the UK courts will revert back to the full practice of anti-suit injunction after Brexit and depart from the ECJ decision in the 2005 West Tankers case and how this will affect the arbitration in the UK. Secondly, the discussion then turns to how these potential changes in the UK may affect the arbitration practice in Ireland.
