Enforcement of Foreign Judgments
Tips and traps
What are your top tips for smooth recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments, and what potential sticking points would you highlight?

Answer ... Mexican law is extremely formalistic as regards the service of summons. It is therefore imperative to engage local counsel when serving summons on the defendant in the foreign proceeding.

Public policy is another tricky issue that must be addressed. When foreign cases take place, and it’s foreseen that recognition and enforcement of the award will likely be in Mexico, local counsel should be engaged to review and analyse the merits of the case and its role with regard to Mexican public policy.
