Teresa Rosen Peacocke discusses US Specific Jurisdiction over Foreign Parties


Members of Outer Temple Chambers whose practices are closely connected to our New York office, advise solicitors and UK-based clients on their potential exposure to litigation in US courts.

They also act for these clients to challenge claims that a US court has jurisdiction over them.

In her most recent article, Teresa Rosen Peacocke discusses recent efforts by plaintiffs to expand the definition of specific jurisdiction (requiring a foreign defendant’s US activities to have given rise to the plaintiff’s claim) so that a defendant’s general activities can be linked to a claim on the basis of a ‘sliding scale’.

One such case from California will be considered by the US Supreme Court this year.
