A User’s Guide to the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements

Hague Convention 

The Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements seeks to promote the use of exclusive choice of court agreements in international contracts by requiring effect to be given both to such agreements and to the judgments of courts nominated thereunder.

On 1 October 2015 it will enter into force for the first time. Whilst, initially, its effect will be limited to the EU Member States (excluding Denmark) and Mexico, the Convention will increase in significance to the extent that more States become party to it.

In this guide we examine how the Convention works and what it means for parties choosing dispute resolution mechanisms.
