Enforcement of Foreign Judgments 2021

Is your country party to any bilateral or multilateral treaties for the reciprocal recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments? What (in general terms) is the country’s approach to entering into these treaties and what if any amendments or reservations has your country made to such treaties?

The UK is party to a number of bilateral and multilateral treaties for the reciprocal recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. Whether one of those treaties applies to the enforcement of a particular foreign judgment largely depends on the country from which the foreign judgment originates. For foreign judgments that do not fall within the scope of one of the treaties, the UK rules on enforcement of foreign judgment can be found in a mixture of statute and case law.
