In this blog, we aim to shed light on this crucial legal tool, its significance, and its implications in the realm of arbitration.

What is an Anti-Enforcement Injunction?

An Anti-Enforcement Injunction is a judicial order sought by a party to prevent the enforcement of an arbitral award. It essentially halts the enforcement process until a court fully examines the award’s validity or addresses concerns raised by the party seeking the injunction. This legal mechanism is employed when a party believes that enforcing the arbitral award would cause irreparable harm or would be contrary to public policy.

The Power and Significance of Anti-Enforcement Injunctions:

Preservation of Rights: Anti-Enforcement Injunctions play a vital role in preserving the rights of parties involved in arbitration proceedings.

They allow the parties to seek judicial intervention when they perceive potential harm resulting from the enforcement of an arbitral award.

Examination of Validity: These injunctions provide an opportunity for a court to review the validity of an arbitral award. This examination ensures that the award was not procured through fraud, undue influence, or any other irregularities that may undermine its enforceability.

Public Policy Considerations: Anti-Enforcement Injunctions are particularly relevant when an arbitral award raises concerns related to public policy. They allow courts to assess whether the enforcement of the award would be contrary to the fundamental principles and values that underpin our legal system.

Effective Remedies: By granting an Anti-Enforcement Injunction, courts can prevent the enforcement of an award until all pertinent legal issues are resolved, ensuring that parties have access to effective remedies and protection against unjust outcomes.

The Process of Obtaining an Anti-Enforcement Injunction:

Filing a Petition: The party seeking the Anti-Enforcement Injunction must file a petition before the competent court, clearly articulating the reasons for challenging the enforcement of the arbitral award.

Demonstration of Harm: The petitioner must provide evidence to substantiate the potential harm that would result from enforcing the award. This may include demonstrating that the award is procured through fraud, that enforcing it would violate public policy, or that the enforcement would cause irreparable damage.

Interim Relief: Upon evaluating the merits of the petition, the court may grant interim relief by issuing an Anti-Enforcement Injunction. This injunction temporarily halts the enforcement process until the court completes a thorough examination of the matter.


Anti-Enforcement Injunctions against Arbitral Awards are a crucial legal tool that allows parties to seek judicial intervention when they believe the enforcement of an award may cause irreparable harm or violate public policy. They enable the preservation of rights, examination of validity, and consideration of public interest.
