Following cabinet crisis talks at Chequers and the subsequent cabinet shakeup which saw Dominic Raab appointed as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, the UK Government published its new Brexit white paper that talks about civil judicial cooperation, and what that could mean for cross-border dispute resolution after Brexit.

In the white paper, the Government recognises that civil judicial cooperation gives businesses certainty in the event of disputes, and thus inspires confidence in cross-border trade, to the mutual benefit of the UK and EU.
