This is the only publication to focus on transatlantic disputes involving England and the United States. Despite their common legal heritage, there are fundamental differences between the processes of dispute resolution in each of the two countries. This work elucidates those differences so that those engaged in transatlantic business understand in advance the risks of litigation in the other country. Each chapter is co-written by an English attorney and a United States lawyer, ensuring that legal and practical considerations are addressed from both perspectives.
This essential desktop reference answers such questions as:
· In what circumstances can a party be subject to jurisdiction in England or the United States?
· If a dispute is being litigated in the courts of one country, but evidence is located in another, what are the procedures for obtaining evidence for use in the foreign court?
· How can one enforce a judgment obtained in England in the United States, and vice versa?
· What strategies can a party use in the event of parallel proceedings in both England and the United States?
