Enforcement

Our litigation team has acted on some of the most complex enforcement actions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including enforcing – or defending the enforcement of – foreign awards and judgments valued in excess of billions of US dollars against Saudi-based entities.

Our team has become skilled at addressing the key issues typically raised in an action to enforce an international award, particularly issues relating to reciprocity, Saudi court jurisdiction, and notification in the case of default judgments.

We know that frequent and insistent follow-up at the Enforcement Courts is often a prerequisite to advancing an enforcement action to the next stage, particularly in relation to the court exercising its powers to identify the assets of a defaulting counter-party.

We also advise legal teams in overseas jurisdictions in advance of obtaining an international award or judgment, so as to take into account key matters that will increase the merits of a potential subsequent enforcement action in the KSA.
