Can an arbitration award issued by a tribunal in the United States or a foreign country be enforced through U.S. courts against assets located within, or outside of, the United States?

What is international arbitration?

One of the questions clients ask most frequently is what is international arbitration?  International arbitration is a dispute resolution method favored by parties to commercial activities because it gives parties more flexibility than litigation and because many believe arbitral awards are more easily enforced than judgments. In arbitration, the parties to a dispute agree to use arbitration in lieu of litigation through an arbitration clause in a contract or by a later arbitration agreement.

International arbitration is often very different from arbitration in the United States or other countries. For example, in some international arbitration proceedings, no formal discovery or disclosure is provided.

Can an arbitration award issued by a tribunal in the United States or a foreign country be enforced through U.S. courts against assets located within, or outside of, the United States?

Yes. Once an arbitral award is "domesticated" in a U.S. court, the court issues a judgment that can be enforced against non-sovereign debtors in the United States against assets located outside of the United States. To do so, a turnover order is used against foreign banks with U.S. branches.
