This Professional Insight appears at an exciting time for international commercial lawyers: new legislation, fresh opportunities – and the challenge of understanding fully how to exploit them. Recent changes to EC Competition law have made a significant impact upon parties’ freedom to contract commercially, generally giving them greater flexibility.
In the field of e-commerce, the EC has issued a welter of laws that are in the course of being implemented into national laws. The report explains the principles and techniques of successful international negotiation and provides a valuable insight into the commercial points to be considered as a result of the laws relating to: pre-contract, private international law resolving disputes (including alternative methods, such as mediation) competition law, drafting common clauses and contracting electronically. It also examines in more detail certain specific international commercial agreements, namely agency and distribution and licensing.
