Presented by Lester Kirshenbaum
To better serve businesses in today’s global economy
and multinational transactions, lawyers should be
familiar with US federal and state statutes and court
procedures to obtain recognition and enforcement of
international commercial arbitration awards and foreign
country monetary judgments.
This program will enumerate and discuss the statutory
provisions and court procedures that can be used in
order to obtain recognition of foreign country monetary
judgments and international commercial arbitral awards
in US courts, and the manner in which those awards
and judgments can be enforced. The program will also
provide practical suggestions for contractual provisions
that can be added to agreements in order to facilitate
those results.
