The case for English law: Underpinning the City – and the UK economy – CSFI and Guy Beringer
Two of the UK’s most senior lawyers, Dame Elizabeth Gloster and Guy Beringer, published a letter in the FT urging the government to provide the sort of support for the UK’s dispute resolution system that it already does for, say, the film and fashion industries. After all, English law is crucial to the UK economy – and there is no doubt that it is under challenge from NY law, from Brexit and from the development of local alternatives not least in Asia. Liz and Guy explain what they want, and why. And Simon Gleeson adds his own contribution to a topic that will become increasingly important.
