Practitioners from the Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and the United States will discuss the various approaches to enforcement in their respective jurisdictions and dispel common myths.  Topics may include the interplay between the InterAmerican Convention, the New York Convention and local arbitration laws; enforcement of awards annulled at the seat; parallel enforcement proceedings; and constitutional actions (“amparo” or “tutela”) against enforcement decisions.
