The Global Legal Post today launches an online comparative jurisdictional guide to Commercial Litigation and Cross-border Enforcement.

The Law Over Borders guide, the 10th in the series, provides a highly practical and up-to-date overview of the litigation, arbitration and alternative dispute resolution landscape in 21 jurisdictions.

It is jointly edited by Winston & Strawn partner Ben Bruton and James Noble, Carey Olsen’s Asia head of the litigation, insolvency and restructuring.

“The GLP guide comes at a time of significant change and uncertainty in global markets,” said Bruton, who has been handling multi-jurisdictional disputes for over 20 years.

“The goal of this book is to act as an easy-access reference point, giving busy practitioners an overview of the dispute resolution landscape in some of the most important jurisdictions in the world from a litigation and arbitration perspective.”

The easy-to-use digital format allows readers to quickly assess and compare the regimes of different jurisdictions by comparing contributing authors’ answers to a series of carefully framed questions, covering topics including the structure of commercial courts, pre-action considerations, disclosure obligations, cost orders, the approach of courts to arbitration as well as the enforceability of judgments. 

Noble said: “Against a backdrop of global economic challenges, regulatory developments, an increased focus on ESG and unprecedented advancements in technology, the way in which parties around the world litigate is changing rapidly. 

“Through expert commentary, the GLP 2023 guide brings a wealth of combined experience together with clear, commercially relevant insight that will help litigators to stay on top of what is undoubtedly one of the fastest-moving areas of law, particularly in light of the recent divergence in jurisprudence across the economic epicentres.”

Bruton added: “It has been a great pleasure to work with so many leading experts in the jurisdictions represented whilst editing the guide.”

The print version of the guide, which features a foreword by ICC International Court of Arbitration president Claudia Salomon, will be available in October and will be officially launched at Anti-Counterfeiting World Law Summit on 18 October.

Forthcoming additions to the series include Cryptoassets; Enterprise Digital Transformation; Media Entertainment and Sport; and White Collar Crime.
