What are the costs of enforcement proceedings and is any kind of costs recovery available for successful parties? Is there a procedural mechanism enabling or requiring security for costs?
The cost of enforcement proceedings will vary, depending on the nature and complexity of the case.
For civil court and arbitration proceedings, a successful party may recover its costs from the losing party, although the quantum of the costs recovered is at the discretion of the court/tribunal and often does not cover all the legal costs and disbursements incurred.
A defendant can invoke the court's jurisdiction under Order 23 of the Rules of Court for security of costs to be ordered, if the court finds it just to do so.
