ENFORCEMENT: Coming out of the cold

04 October 2013  

Morten Frank and Gregers Gam outline the Danish approach to the recognition of foreign judgments

Traditionally, Denmark has not recognised foreign judgments rendered in jurisdictions outside EU (and EFTA). Conversely, arbitral awards are recognised, regardless of their origin.
