Enforcement of Foreign Judgments

Select Format

Free trade agreements, the growing expansion of international business, open-border politics--each in its own way offers major opportunities for world trade and new hope for individuals seeking to better their standard of living. But these new opportunities may come with challenges. The complications which can arise in a breakdown of contracts in multinational transactions and an attempt to enforce foreign judgements can prove costly and time-consuming.

Enforcement of Foreign Judgements helps alleviate the time and costs of consulting foreign attorneys or government agencies for information regarding the specific procedures of individual nations and their policies towards enforcement of foreign judgements. It addresses the most pertinent specifications, requirements, and legislation of each individual nation. Topics addressed include:

  • Currency regulations and restrictions
  • Documentary requirements
  • Special treaties
  • Translation of documents
  • Pending proceedings and
  • Service requirements.

Having this crucial information on hand in a practical looseleaf guide allows users to research a particular country's requirements regarding enforcement policies without the need to search numerous separate sources. Periodic updates assure that Enforcement of Foreign Judgements includes all countries in which international business takes place.
