Enforcement of Foreign Judgments – Contribution of Indonesia Chapter to Lexology’s GTDT Series
Assegaf Hamzah & Partners (“AHP“) has contributed the Indonesia chapter on “Enforcement of Foreign Judgments” to Lexology’s Getting the Deal Through (GTDT) series.
Authored by AHP partner Simon Barrie Adiwidagdo, FCIArb (International Arbitration, Investment, and Banking & Construction), and associates Inara Chaidir and Josep Tambunan, the chapter is a quick reference guide that enables a side-by-side comparison of local insights into relevant treaties, conventions and other sources of law. Among other matters, it looks into limitation periods, defences, requirements for recognition, jurisdiction of the foreign court, and recent trends.
The chapter also considers the recognition and enforceability of foreign arbitral awards. A foreign arbitral award may be recognised if certain requirements (under Law No. 30 of 1999 on Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution, as well as guidelines issued by the Indonesia Supreme Court) are met. The enforcing party may then continue with the enforcement process. To read the chapter in full, please click here. To find out more about our International Arbitration Practice, please click here.
