Trends and predictions
How would you describe the current enforcement landscape and prevailing trends in your jurisdiction? Are any new developments anticipated in the next 12 months, including any proposed legislative reforms?

Answer ... The new Regulation (EU) 1215/2012 has played its role effectively: as intended, there is now less litigation in this regard. The European Union can now be defined as an integrated space as far as recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments are concerned. The French Court of Cassation ensures a coherent interpretation of EU law, in accordance with the principle of mutual confidence in jurisdiction and decisions. This analysis is confirmed by the fact that litigation is now mainly related to foreign non-EU judgments. The decisions issued by French courts on foreign non-EU judgments involve only the implementation of old legal precedents.
