leave a comment »

The creation of the Business and Property Courts was noted here in April. From 4 July 2017 a series of events is being held in court centres around the country to launch the new Courts. The Courts will become operational from 2 October 2017.

The existing courts being brought together under the single umbrella are:

  •  The Admiralty Court.
  •  The Business List
  • The Commercial Court (covering all its existing subject areas of banking and finance, shipping and insurance, trade and energy, and international arbitration, as well as the Circuit Commercial Courts, formerly Mercantile Courts.)
  • The Competition List.
  • The Financial List (covering banking and financial markets).
  • The Insolvency and Companies Court.
  • The Intellectual Property List (Including the Patents Court and the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court, the “IPEC”).
  • The Property Trust and Probate List.
  • The Revenue List.
  • The Technology and Construction Court (covering all its traditional areas of major technology and construction cases).
