Foreign Judgments

INTERNATIONAL - Foreign Judgments

We have extensive experience assisting foreign litigants in enforcing their foreign judgments in Canada, including judgments granted pursuant to cross-border bankruptcy protocols, and assisting Canadian litigants resisting enforcement in Canada of foreign judgments.  For example, we have acted as counsel on one of the leading cases on the defences to the enforcement of foreign judgments in Ontario. Oakwell Engineering Ltd. v. Enernorth Industries Inc. (2006), 81 O.R. (3d) 288 (C.A.).  Our experience extends to advising parties on enforcement issues before the foreign judgment has been issued by the foreign court to ensure that it is enforceable in Canada.
