What is the perspective of several countries on punitive damages in and outside of Europe? What issues arise from the recognition and enforcement of foreign (mostly US) punitive damages judgments? How do different countries view the public policy exception?

These questions and more were among the topics that were addressed during the M-EPLI Roundtable on punitive damages that took place on October 14th. The Roundtable was organized by Lotte Meurkens and Cedric Vanleenhove. Multiple experts shared their insights on the recognition and enforcement of punitive damages in several countries.
