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 ... For foreign creditors, which rarely have a procedural address within Norway, it will often be a requirement to be represented by Norwegian counsel. Such assistance may be preferable in any case in order to follow up with the enforcement authorities every step of the way. The Norwegian courts are quite effective and accept judgments or arbitral awards rendered in Norwegian, Swedish and Danish. The courts also accept arbitral awards rendered in English and will often make the same exception for foreign judgments (provided that all parties understand English).
