International Law

Doing business in the global marketplace often requires the assistance of a skilled lawyer who is familiar with transnational commercial business arrangements. These days, companies conduct trade relations all across the globe with much greater frequency. In these cases, differing country-specific systems of private law, which would be taken into account in judicial decisions often collide. Our German attorneys are skilled in trade law interpretation, contract negotiation, financing transactions and international litigation. We offer comprehensive advice on complex issues arising from the closure of international contracts, as well as those in existing contractual relationships.

Private International Law (IPR)
If an international business matter does require litigation, there is often a question of which court of law should hear the case.

The Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) is the preeminent organization in the area of private international law and seeks to develop a Choice of Court agreement that would serve the international legal community. Essentially, the agreement would require member countries to recognize and enforce the decisions reached by courts of another signatory if a dispute was governed by a valid choice of court agreement.

Contracts and International Law Conflicts
The potential problems that arise from an international law dispute can sometimes be mitigated by a well drafted contract. An experienced international business lawyer can help you to consider potential areas of concern and address the legal resolution of such problems in a contract.

Often we advise our clients who are engaged in international business transactions to include a clause that specifies where litigation will take place if it does occur. Designating the controlling jurisdiction for litigation at the inception of the business relationship minimizes future legal expenses.

Our international business attorneys are skilled at recognizing potential conflicts of laws issues and drafting international business contracts.
