Our trusted, cross-border lawyers action strong enforcement strategies and help to recover assets.

 Securing your judgment or arbitral award at the end of proceedings may not be the end of the story; debtors may resist satisfying these debts and employ strategies to shield assets, such as relocating them to jurisdictions that do not recognize specific judgments or lack well-established enforcement measures.

Developing an enforcement strategy at an early stage is essential to ensure the timely satisfaction of a judgment debt or award and the efficient recovery of assets. This strategy will also help minimize legal expenditure. Plaintiffs/claimants should proactively consider and plan for potential enforcement action at the outset of proceedings, adopting a global perspective.


Drawing on extensive experience, Mayer Brown helps clients plan and successfully execute their enforcement strategies by adopting a thorough and customized approach to cross-border asset recovery.
