Enforcing U.S. Judgement In The UK
FREE GUIDE: The Endgame - Enforcing U.S. Judgment in the UK
The US is the main overseas investment market and the main single country export market for UK businesses.
Even in the light of challenging economic conditions, British-American trade is worth $214 billion and it is set to grow particularly given that the UK has voted to leave the European internal market.
However despite the special relationship that exists between the US and the UK, enforcing the judgment in the UK for US Firms remains a complicated process as there is no convention or treaty providing for the reciprocal enforcement of judgments between the US and UK. As a result of this, a US judgment cannot be enforced directly in the UK (that is to say by execution or a similar process). However, it is possible to enforce US Judgment by way of common law in the UK court.
