Enforcement Foreign Judgment

This service is available across Lithuania

Who Is This Service For?

  • The enforcement of a foreign court judgment in Lithuania is a complex process designed to aid individuals or entities in implementing legal decisions made outside of Lithuania within its jurisdiction.
  • This service targets individuals or entities with a favourable court judgment from abroad seeking to enforce it within Lithuania. 
  • This group includes international litigants, overseas businesses, or private individuals embroiled in cross-border disputes.
