New French Book on Cross-Border Debt Recovery
I am delighted to announce the publication of a book that I have coauthored with Clotilde Normand, who practices at Baker & McKenzie in Paris, and Fanny Cornette, who teaches at the University of Rouen, on International Enforcement Law, or Cross-Border Debt Recovery (Droit international de l’exécution – Recouvrement des créances civiles et commerciales) .
The book is divided in two parts. Part one discusses how foreign judgments, arbitral awards, authentic acts and decisions of international courts can be declared enforceable in France. Part two explores how enforcement can then actually take place in France in an international context. In particular, it discusses attachments of assets and court injunctions backed with financial penalties.
