Remarks by The Hon Mr Justice Blair: Commercial Dispute Resolution – Current Developments in the Commercial Court

|High Court|Commercial Court|News

The Commercial Litigation & Arbitration Forum has become a well established event, as the list of speakers, sponsors and most of all the delegates shows.

It is also a very practical event, and in that spirit I am going to keep my remarks this morning on a practical level and concentrate on what is currently going on in the Commercial Court which may be of interest to you in the work you do.

I am going to speak under three broad headings. First, technology, second, procedure, and third, international strategy. These are not exact categories of course and we do not regard them as such.

But to begin by flagging up the third. We of course understand that commercial dispute resolution is now a global occupation. We welcome this, and the competition it brings. And since last year, we have had a strategy in place which I will come to later.
