Kosovo – Contract Law Enforcement
The Contract Law Enforcement (CLE) Program built upon the accomplishments of the Kosovo SEAD Program, which was implemented by Checchi from 2009 to 2012. The CLE program had two components. The first component focused on making the enforcement of civil judgments more effective and efficient; further establishing the new private enforcement system; and reducing the backlog of enforcement cases in the court system. Checchi advisors helped develop standard operating procedures and performance standards for court enforcement personnel, as well as supported the efforts of the Ministry of Justice to monitor and improve the private enforcement system. Under the second component, Checchi advisors worked with the Ministry of Justice and other government counterparts to develop new commercial legislation, including a new bankruptcy law and secondary legislation for the recently-enacted Law on Obligations.
