Webinar Recording: Litigating in Scotland Part 2 of 2 - Enforcement of Foreign Judgments

With the continuing internationalisation of even the smallest businesses, one of the most frequent queries we receive from solicitors based in other jurisdictions is how they can enforce a judgment from their jurisdiction in Scotland.

In this webinar, the second in a two-part series, we examine the rules and procedures governing the enforcement of:

  • judgments from England & Wales in Scotland;
  • judgments from members of the EU in Scotland;
  • judgments from outside the EU in Scotland; and
  • Scottish judgments in England & Wales.

Taking you through some recent case studies, we explain the process, likely timescales and costs involved, as well as potential complications based on our experience.  The webinar also discusses the ‘diligence’ or enforcement methods which can be used in Scotland including inhibition, attachment, bank or earnings arrestment and insolvency procedures. Finally, consideration is given to the likely impact that Brexit will have on the enforcement of judgments in Scotland and the UK.

The recording is now available on YouTube and Vimeo.
