Our experts guide you step by step through the process of international law enforcement
Judicial power, like state power, ends at the respective state borders. However, there is no uniform procedure for helping creditors of foreign debtors to enforce their claims.
Competent support for efficient law enforcement
Accordingly, there are different procedures for enforcing a foreign court decision in Germany. Although foreign judgments are generally recognized in Germany, this does not mean that they have the same effect as a German judgment. Whether the judgment is also declared enforceable in Germany depends on whether the conditions for recognition of the judgment within Germany are met. Germany maintains intergovernmental agreements with most countries. Corresponding regulations exist for the European Union in order to simplify the enforcement of judgments. Under the German Code of Procedure, domestic enforcement of a judgment from a state that does not fall within the scope of an intergovernmental convention or a European regulation can only be enforced in Germany if enforcement has been declared admissible or if corresponding contractual relations exist.
The Convention on Recognition with Non-European States, on the other hand, is in a state of constant change.
We take into account the constantly developing intergovernmental agreements and help you to initiate the appropriate proceedings in Germany to enforce international claims, to enforce foreign judgments or to take action against them.
It is possible for us, due to a close cooperation with numerous foreign medium-sized law firms, to assert and enforce your judgments obtained in Germany with the help of these law firms abroad.
