BAT Caribbean S.A. and others v PHP Tobacco Carib SARL and others

Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. There was nothing in the correspondence between the parties which had clearly and precisely conferred jurisdiction in relation to the additional claim on the English courts. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, agreed with the Commercial Court in finding that arrangements between the parties did not constitute an exclusive jurisdiction agreement in favour of the English court within the meaning of Regulation (EU) No 1215/2012 of the European Parliament and Council.
