Answer ... Successful completion of the recognition and enforcement process generally depends on:
- the applicable legal framework (eg, the EU regulations, international convention or Code of Civil Procedure);
- the subject matter of the judgment; and
- the defences raised by the defendant.
Thus, it is very important to first identify the applicable legal framework under which recognition and enforcement of the foreign judgment will be pursued. Particular attention should be paid to ensuring that all relevant and required supporting documentation is provided. To this end, the selection of appropriate and specialised legal counsel is important.
