Securities dispute resolution: Enforcing awards

Enforcing the Award

Originally prepared by Lucia Benabentos of the Cornell Law School Securities Law Clinic.

Parties may voluntarily comply with an award. However, in the event of noncompliance, the arbitral panel has no power to enforce the award, only a court has the power to force compliance. Thus, a party seeking to enforce an award may have to sue in court.
