Courts throughout Africa are increasingly seized with applications to recognize and enforce foreign judgments as well as foreign arbitral awards. African states are increasingly adopting the UNCITRAL Model Law on international arbitration and acceding to the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards.
Although many of the requirements for the enforcement of foreign judgments and arbitral awards are common to many African countries, each country has its own unique practices, procedures and pitfalls in the field.
It is with great pleasure that we bring you the first LEX Africa Guide to the Enforcement of Foreign Money Judgments and Arbitral Awards in Africa which we trust you will find informative and practical.
This is a project of the LEX Africa Disputes Practice Group headed by Roger Wakefield who also edited this guide.
