Exclusive jurisdiction clauses are key to effective cross-border trade. The existing regime for enforcement of exclusive jurisdiction clauses in the UK and throughout the EU contains some areas of uncertainty but is, overall, sufficiently robust to be used with confidence. Similarly, while any new regime post-Brexit will not be perfect, it will be robust enough for everyday use and may even avoid some of the problems of the existing regime.
