Business and Investment in the Face of Sanctions
Issues surrounding transnational payment recovery – and transnational bankruptcy in particular –invariably involve various legal orders interacting with each other. It also encompasses work by legal specialists based in different jurisdictions. This is not always an easy task in and of itself, and now the new international legal reality arising from the war of sanctions has only complicated this process further. Numerous experts have identified a growing trend for jurisdictional fragmentation. When considering lawsuits, the claim is often made that it is impossible to ensure justice or fair consideration of disputes in a court or arbitration process as originally set out by the parties to a contract. What’s more, procedures to recognize and enforce foreign judgments and arbitral decisions (already a complicated process from a legal and formal point of view) have become much more difficult. What new challenges have emerged, and what approaches can be taken to address them?
