AIG Europe Sa and Others v John Wood Group Plc and Another: CA 10 Jun 2022

Whether Mr Justice Jacobs was right to grant an anti-suit injunction restraining the defendants from pursuing proceedings in the Court of Queen’s Bench in Alberta, Canada under various policies of excess liability insurance. That depends on whether the policies provide for the exclusive jurisdiction of the English court, so that the pursuit of those proceedings would be a breach of contract by the defendants.
