Conflict of laws - Jurisdiction - Civil and commercial matters - Exclusive jurisdiction - Bill of lading providing for English law and jurisdiction - Defendants commencing proceedings in Colombia - Claimant applying for anti-suit injunction - Whether jurisdiction clause should be enforced.
The claimant shipowners were entitled to an anti-suit injunction to prevent the defendants from bringing proceedings in Colombia contrary to a bill of lading with an exclusive English law and jurisdiction clause. There was no reason why it would be reasonable to judge the consent of the defendants otherwise than by the law of their choice.
