Can I enforce a foreign country arbitration award in the U.S?

Generally, you can enforce an arbitration award rendered in a foreign country with certain exceptions (e.g., the parties did not agree on having the matter arbitrated, the party was not given proper notice or was otherwise unable to present its case, the award is being appealed, recognition or enforcement of the award would be contrary to the public policy of the U.S.). The U.S. is a party to the Convention on Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (also known as the New York Convention), which makes the enforcement of the foreign country arbitral awards generally easier than the enforcement of foreign country judgments. The enforcement of foreign country arbitral awards is governed by the New York Convention. You should hire a competent international lawyer to help you with the recognition and enforcement of the foreign country arbitral award in the U.S. For more information regarding the recognition and enforcement of the foreign country arbitral awards, and to speak with an experienced international attorney, please contact us.
