Commercial Courts Report 2018

Portland’s annual Commercial Courts Report analyses judgments from the London Commercial Courts to find trends over time – both who uses the Courts, and how London measures up in an increasingly competitive international market.

The 2018 Report was released today and is available here.

Portland’s analysis reveals that:

  1. The London courts are increasingly international. Litigants from 69 countries were represented in the past year, continuing a steady upwards trend over the last three years.
  2. Russian litigants continued to loom large in commercial court proceedings. Russia is ranked third for litigants appearing in court by nationality.
  3. The market for international commercial courts is increasingly competitive. Regional hubs and, post-Brexit, English-speaking courts outside the UK, are potentially looking to challenge London’s courts.

Portland’s specialist Disputes team provides strategic communications advice to help reinforce your legal strategy. We ensure that every aspect of your client’s concerns are managed, and every potential advantage explored.
