It is not uncommon that the party which has prevailed in the proceedings needs to enforce the award in a jurisdiction other than that of the seat.

In Spain, this requires proceedings to recognise the foreign arbitral award (following the provisions of the New York Convention) before it can be enforced. Thus the losing party may have time to take measures to frustrate or hinder the enforcement proceedings.

In order to tackle this problem, it is possible to ask for interim measures that remain in place while the recognition proceedings are ongoing.
