This resource is an invaluable tool for practitioners and students who wish to understand and prepare for the main issues they will face when dealing with international contracts.


With increasing globalization, multinational agreements are becoming a common practice for most traders.

This updated edition provides insights into the basic requirements of a well-drafted contract and covers, among other things:

• The choice of the applicable law
• The choice of jurisdiction
• International arbitration
• The use of more international drafting techniques
• Hardship, force majeure and liquidated damages
