Drafting an international contract can be a risky business. Yet with the
increasing globalization of markets, these cross-border contracts are becoming
a common practice for most traders, as well as for the lawyers assisting them.
At the same time, international contracts remain a difficult and mysterious
subject for business people as well as their lawyers.
In his new book, Drafting and Negotiating International Commercial
Contracts, Professor Fabio Bortolotti, a world-renowned expert on contract
law, clarifies the issues surrounding these contracts and provides solutions
to the thorny problems they raise:
choice of the applicable law
choice of jurisdiction
the use of more international drafting techniques
hardship, force majeure and liquidated damages
As an added feature, this volume provides insights into the basic requirements
of a well-drafted contract and analyzes in depth the negotiating process. It
concludes with incisive commentary on the model contracts developed by the
International Chamber of Commerce.
Lawyers and other legal professionals will find in these pages the tools they
need to ensure their contracts meet the requirements of a globalized world.
