A creditor requests assistance in relation to recognition and enforcement of a Russian court judgment in English courts against a debtor with assets in England.

In response to the request, Via Legalis:

  1. explains the procedure for recognition and enforcement of a foreign judgment in England; 

  2. advises on the legal merits of successful recognition of the judgment in English courts and its subsequent enforcement against the debtor's assets in England; and

  3. advises on the likely costs for both the recognition and the enforcement stages.

Taking all of the factors into consideration, the creditor decides not to proceed.
