Crossing Borders: Enforcement of arbitration awards

In this edition, we focus on enforcement of arbitration awards. We explore why it is important, the most common avenues available and some of the key risks and hurdles a successful party may face. In particular, we look in detail at sovereign immunity. We also explore trends in enforcement of foreign arbitral awards: in the People’s Republic of China by presenting our detailed research into 20 years of court practice; in the UAE focusing on recent developments in attitude and approach; and as between the “two systems; one arrangement” that are PRC Mainland and Hong Kong.

Next, we explore some of the key dispute resolution issues that arise following the UK’s recent vote to leave the EU for international disputes generally and arbitration specifically. Finally, we cover some recent key decisions in international arbitration, both court decisions relating to arbitration from Spain, Germany and the UK, as well as the investment treaty award in Murphy Oil v Ecuador.
