With no provision for civil judicial cooperation in the Trade Agreement between the UK and the EU, the Brussels Recast Regulation no longer applies to cases commenced in England & Wales after 31 December 2020. The UK has also, effective 1 January 2021, acceded to the 2005 Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements in its own right.
