Authored Publication – While international business offers new opportunities, they are often accompanied by challenges of their own. In the event of disputes, parties may need to enforce court judgments in a foreign jurisdiction, an often daunting prospect.
The online manual “Enforcement of Foreign Judgments” seeks to provide information and guidance to practitioners in this regard, alleviating the time and costs of consulting foreign lawyers or government agencies on country-specific policies and procedures for enforcement. Covering 102 jurisdictions from Algeria to Zambia, the manual addresses the following topics for each jurisdiction:
- categories of enforceable judgments, including arbitral awards;
- documentary requirements;
- methods of execution;
- translation of documents;
- pending proceedings; and
- service requirements.
