This book assists the practitioner seeking to enforce a foreign judgment in the United States or a U.S. rendered judgment abroad in navigating the lack of procedural uniformity that exists and in planning strategies likely to ensure effective enforcement. As a handbook, it provides the practitioner with a framework and resources with which to approach and further research the laws of the relevant state or country.

In Part One, the guide takes the practitioner chronologically through the process of obtaining a U.S. court's recognition and enforcement of judgments rendered abroad. Part Two takes the practitioner through the process of obtaining an overseas jurisdiction's recognition and enforcement of judgments rendered in the United States. Part Three assesses the current trends in the U.S. and in the international trade environment regarding enforcement of judgments which may be made by foreign courts.
