Overview

Cross-border disputes have become deeply embedded in the fabric of modern business.  Such disputes, although frequent, present unique challenges.  Indeed, there is no single, universal forum where all international disputes can be heard, nor any uniform legal system to govern them.  And, after a dispute is resolved, the ensuing judgment or award needs to be “domesticated” by obtaining its recognition and enforcement before formal collection efforts can begin.  The recognition and enforcement of international arbitral awards and foreign court judgments is a process requiring careful planning and steadfast compliance with applicable foreign, international, and domestic law norms, as well as local practices.  It frequently calls for bespoke enforcement strategies, comprehensive multi-jurisdictional approaches, and nonlinear solutions.

William T. O’Brien and Ulyana Bardyn of Eversheds Sutherland (US) LLP will discuss key concepts pertaining to the enforcement of international arbitral awards and foreign court judgments.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Legal regime for the enforcement of international arbitral awards in the United States (5 minutes)
  • Procedure for the enforcement of international arbitral awards under the New York Convention and under the Washington Convention (10 minutes)
  • Defenses against the enforcement of international arbitral awards (10 minutes)
  • Legal regime for the enforcement of foreign court judgments in the United States (5 minutes)
  • Procedure for the enforcement of foreign court judgments (10 minutes)
  • Defenses against the enforcement of foreign court judgments (10 minutes)
