The editors of Recognition and Enforcement of International Commercial Arbitral Awards in Latin America: Law, Practice and Leading Cases present a country-by-country review of the law, arbitral practice and leading cases on the recognition and enforcement of international commercial arbitral awards in the region.
In a global economy where arbitration has become standard for dispute resolution between commercial entities of different nationalities, the enforcement of international commercial arbitral awards in local jurisdictions is the ultimate bottom-line. Yet even with international conventions in place to facilitate the process, practical information on how Latin American courts enforce international commercial arbitral awards is limited.
Organized by country, each chapter provides a relevant overview and guide to the substantive and procedural practice in the jurisdiction. In contrast to other sources of information and databases, the book provides excerpts of leading cases, analyses of relevant laws and international treaties and descriptions of local practice.
