AN ENFORCEABLE INSTRUMENT
When there are no attacks or no more attacks, or they come to a close, it may seem the award has concluded the dispute at least in that jurisdiction.
Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. In fact, unless the losing party voluntarily submits to pay according to the terms awarded, frequently the victorious party must be compelled to comply through enforcement proceedings. For enforcement of the award in its state of origin, the award must then go through the various stages of enforcement proceedings and resist possible opposition, either to the right to enforcement or to any of the various steps of the enforcement proceedings.
Consequently, the arbitrator’s duty to render an enforceable award which has been frequently stressed in the literature, does not, even if it is complied with, allow for automatic collection under that award.1
