'Winning is Only Half the Battle': Procedural Issues Relating to the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards


This article addresses some procedural problems which may arise in the recognition and enforcement of a foreign arbitral award under the Model Law and potential jurisdictional and limitation period challenges to a foreign arbitral award arising from two fundamental and inter-related issues: 1) Is the foreign arbitral award open to post-award enforcement challenges by the debtor? and 2) which enforcement procedure is most effective? Not having reference to limitation period for enforcement of arbitral awards in any of the Limitation Act, does not automatically waive the Limitation Period. Discussing various issues relating to limitation periods challenges to a foreign arbitral award, the author suggests for legislative reforms.
