On Aug. 7, 2019, forty-six countries, including the United States, signed the United Nations Convention on International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation, also known as the Singapore Mediation Convention. In the global economy, most practitioners will have clients affected by contracts involving non-U.S. based companies. It means that a settlement may be enforced directly in the country where the breaching party is, rather than having to bring an action here and seek recognition in the foreign jurisdiction, or starting from scratch to get a judgment for breach of contract. It applies only to settlement agreements concluded after the date that the convention enters into force for the relevant nations.
