Sarah Crowther QC to speak at the APIL Accidents Abroad Conference 2021

Now in its 6th year, APIL will be hosting their Accidents Abroad Conference 2021 and have invited Sarah Crowther QC to speak about the developments in jurisdiction following the landmark Brownlie decision.

As well as Sarah, a host of eminent speakers will be taking part in this popular annual event, which is returning to London’s Marriott Marble Arch Hotel as a hybrid event where delegates can either choose to view the event live in person or watch this virtually, via APIL’s dedicated conference app. All delegates attending in person will also have access to the virtual programme, where they can watch this back – on demand – over a period of six months.

Developments in jurisdiction

After an introduction to the event by Chris Deacon, Co-ordinator of APIL International SIG and Partner at Stewarts, and Jatinder Paul, Secretary of APIL’s International SIG and Senior Associate at Irwin Mitchell, Sarah Crowther QC will commence the programme of talks on the subject of ‘Developments in Jurisdiction’. Her talk will cover the legal landscape following Brexit and common law gateways. Sarah will also discuss the outcome of Brownlie (2) in the Supreme Court where she led Daniel Clarke and Joshua Cainer to act on behalf of Lady Brownlie in FS Cairo (Nile Plaza) LLC (Appellant) v Brownlie [2021] UKSC 45.
