Gordon Nardell QC’s term as Leader of the European Circuit of the Bar came to an end at the Circuit’s recent annual conference, held in Zagreb in association with the Croatian Bar Association (Hrvatska Odvjetnicka Komora). The choice of location marked Croatia’s 2013 accession to the EU. The conference covered UK and Croatian perspectives on current issues in European dispute resolution including cross-border litigation, competition rules, follow-on damages claims and State aid. Gordon and other members of the Bar have pledged their support for the Croatian profession’s EU education and training work for its members. Gordon is succeeded as Circuit Leader by fellow commercial silk Barbara Dohmann QC, a former Chair of COMBAR.
