The law relating to the enforcement of judgments in England and Wales is complex: a complexity deriving from the lack of any overall supervision of the procedure. Enforcement tasks are divided between solicitors, judges and other court officers, and independent enforcement agents, and are moreover allocated to two different court systems: the High Court and the County Court. For the creditor who is not experienced in English enforcement law, it may be difficult to know where to get good advice. In addition, information about debtors’ assets is not easy to obtain. In the light of these considerations, the amendments to English law that have been introduced to implement the Brussels I Regulation (recast) – removing the previously centralised procedure for registration of foreign judgments and directing creditors to choose among these diffuse enforcement procedures – do not seem to be an unalloyed improvement in the system of cross-border enforcement.
