Arbitration is increasingly used globally as the efficient and cost-effective alternative to court litigation for solving commercial disputes. It is also making inroads into new areas such as trust disputes.

Speed and expertise in the jurisdiction where you need to enforce an arbitration award are essential. Early input from offshore experts can help you decide on the best relief available and how effectively to enforce against offshore assets.

Conyers has a dedicated Arbitration Enforcement Group which comprises the collective specialist talent and experience of Conyers attorneys across our offices worldwide. We have many decades of experience enforcing  arbitration awards in Bermuda, the BVI and the Cayman Islands from virtually every arbitral tribunal in the world.

Rely on us to make sure that your arbitration award is not just a piece of paper and can convert into real assets.

Our Services

We are frequently instructed to act in the leading, highest value and most important arbitration matters offshore. Our clients include major global corporations operating in every relevant market and sector as well as global financial institutions and high net worth individuals. Members of our group include a past president in the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, local chairs of the Institute as well as those with distinguished academic backgrounds in relation to the law and practice of arbitrations.

In addition to the enforcement (and, where appropriate, resisting enforcement) of awards, the group regularly advises and obtains essential interim relief in support of arbitrations, or prospective references to arbitration, as well as any form of available execution. We are experts at obtaining disclosure orders in support of possible arbitration proceedings – often a crucial step in any effective enforcement strategy.

Our depth of experience allows us to quickly assess the most suitable and successful form of enforcement and to cost effectively obtain the results that you require. Moreover, our global footprint allows us to provide timely advice whatever the time zone or degree of urgency.
