Court judgments are worth little to the business community if decisions can’t be enforced. Through a series of memoranda with leading international jurisdictions, the DIFC Courts has now established one of the world’s strongest enforcement regimes.
Our judgments can be enforced locally, regionally, and internationally, through treaties such as the GCC Convention and Riyadh Convention, conventions with China, India and France, and reciprocal arrangements with many of the leading commercial courts located in the world’s top financial hubs, such as New York, Singapore, London and Hong Kong.
The DIFC Courts has the power, in matters over which it has jurisdiction, to make any orders, including interlocutory orders and to issue or direct the issue of any writs it considers appropriate. Orders may be made in relation to restitution, disgorgement, compensation, or damages.
The DIFC Courts may also waive any procedural requirements if the DIFC Courts are satisfied that an applicant is unable to meet the procedural requirement.
The fee for enforcing DIFC Court judgments or orders under Part 48 of the RDC shall be US$ 100.
The fee for enforcing judgments or orders made outside of the DIFC Courts shall be 1% of the value of the judgment or order, with a minimum of US$ 100 and capped at US$ 20,000.
The fee for a letter or information from the DIFC Courts to enforce outside of the DIFC shall be US$ 100.
The fee for any other enforcement applications at the DIFC Courts shall be US$ 300.
