As foreseen in the Withdrawal Agreement (art. 67) and as the Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers of the European Commission took care to clarify in its document on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union and the Community rules in the field of civil justice and private international law (https://ec.europa.eu/info/sites/info/files/brexit_files/info_site/civil_justice_en. pdf), the EU texts on recognition and enforcement of judgments will continue to apply if the judgment to be recognized is the result of proceedings commenced before the end of the transitional period, even if the judgment is rendered after the end of the transitional period, with certain additional requirements in relation to some specific Regulations (e.g. Regulation 805/2004 creating a European Enforcement Order (EEO) for uncontested claims, which further requires that certification as an EEO had been applied for before the end of the transitional period). However, judgments rendered in proceedings commenced after 31 December 2020 will no longer be subject to these rules.

The High Court is the court of competent jurisdiction for most matters through its District Registries and the Royal Courts of Justice in London. It is divided into three divisions: the Chancery Division, the Civil Division (Queen’s Bench) and the Family Division (Family Division).

The Chancery Division deals with general commercial matters and specialized matters such as wills, trusts, insolvency and taxation. The Civil Division (Queen’s Bench Division) deals with all other civil matters, including contract litigation, personal injury claims, industrial accidents, indemnity claims and negligence claims. Both the Chancery and Civil Divisions have specialized courts that will hear different areas.    For example, the Civil Division has two main specialized courts, the Commercial Court, which hears commercial litigation, and the Technology and Construction Court, which hears primarily construction claims and technology litigation.
