(Cayman) Enforcement of Foreign Judgments

The purpose of this briefing note is to consider the availability of, and procedure for, enforcement in the Cayman Islands of judgments of the courts of foreign countries.

Foreign judgments have no direct operation in the Cayman Islands, so, for example, they cannot directly be enforced by execution. However, certain foreign judgments may be enforced pursuant to Cayman Islands statutory or common law rules.
