In this field of law, you will find how attorneys represent clients for employment litigation, loan defaults, land use, real estate and zoning disputes. Some of the other things include civil rights claims, construction disputes, covenant actions and breach of contract claims.

You have to stay alert to the procedural rules and the substantive rules that have an impact on clients and their actions. Another one of the services that work for clients is for us to regularly update clients on the relevant matters to their business and the continual education classes on the topics that interest them.

Examples of Commercial Disputes

Most cases of international commercials disputes will involve a foreign party, and it will concern disputes with transactions for commercial parties. Many times with international trade issues, it will involve anti-trust matters. It will also involve consumer protection and consumer fraud. In some cases, it involves another business interfering with the contract or the business relationships. It could also have something to do with the intellectual property.

International Goods

In international business, we see an overwhelming volume of goods in constant movement throughout the world. It creates billions of pounds in revenue every day, and it gives a lot of lawyers the chance for international work. International commercial law will usually have something to do with plenty of transactions, and it leads to the disputes and conflicts. One of the key problems that come from this is the fact that different countries will have differing laws, which makes the legal practices, as well as the interpretations of these laws, differ from each place.

Pre-Contractual Liability

What happens when you negotiate with other businesses and they decide to pull out of the contract? This creates potential legal obligations for the other party depending on the contract and the negotiations. However, the laws for different countries will vary in terms of the liability. While both parties might be compliant under their own laws, the international courts must decide what happens when both positions clash.

Applicable Law

Parties on an international level will usually have commercial transactions that agree with the contract on what law will apply to it. Before you even begin with international business, you should first draw the lines up so that everyone understands their place. You want to decide this beforehand which laws will apply in the event that you would start to clash. In the event that you don’t decide this beforehand, the determination of which law applies can turn into a big hassle. For the EU, a harmonized set of rules have been implemented. One of the biggest things that come up with international commercial law is establishing these critical rules.

Do Oral Agreements Work?

You do have some countries where you can enforcement oral agreements like in the UK. In some of the others, however, oral agreements have no value, and you can’t depend on them to protect you. Imagine this scenario—two businessmen meet up from different countries and one enforces oral agreements while the other doesn’t. Both leave at the end of the night, but one of them believes the oral agreement was enough. Meanwhile, the second party believes it must be concluded with a contract. Which one has more rights? This answer depends on previous establishments. International commercial transactions can turn into a major headache under the wrong circumstances.

Which Court Holds More Weight?

Another one of the big issues that arise is which court will be competent to hear the court case if a dispute arises? If the parties haven’t agreed on this beforehand, they will need to solve the problem based on conflict of law rules. Our international commercial litigation attorneys can help you to establish these things.
