Genre: Law

There are many guides to the conduct of international business transactions, but none as comprehensive and detailed as this. It clearly identifies in great depth the many sources of risk in cross-border transactions, analyzes the legal instruments that provide protection to the parties, and describes the practical means--institutional, purchased, and negotiated--of reducing, reallocating, and perhaps even eliminating risks. Each chapter covers a distinct element of risk, with insightful commentary on the relevant national, regional, and international laws and detailed analyses of leading and defining cases from many jurisdictions and international courts, as well as considerations of significant scholarly contributions and guidance through insurance options and matters for negotiation. Beginning with the entry-level commercial transaction and letter of credit financing, the author moves through issues of commercial law, dispute resolution, sovereign involvement, public international law, antitrust law, and taxation. Along the way, he highlights types of transaction to which host country law has special application. The crucial issues of jurisdiction, choice of forum in dispute resolution, recognition and enforcement of judgments, foreign currency judgments, and defenses against claims of sovereign immunity all arise in context with detailed critical analysis and commentary. Other matters covered include the commercial and political risk insurance provided by such US agencies as the Export-Import Bank and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), and the protection for investors offered by the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), and the draft Multilateral Treaty on Investment (MAI).

International Business Transactions

ISBN: 1594608245

Genre: Law

International Business Transactions provides a basic introduction to international economic relations as well as to cross-border transactions in goods and services. The book covers both international trade and international business transactions materials and can be used for a course covering either or both topics. The book includes numerous individual and collaborative exercises so that students can ''learn by doing'' with respect to everything from trade negotiations to contract drafting. International Business Transactions is divided into four parts. The first three parts (Chapters 1-12) take students from the big picture concepts of international trade and monetary relations, through institutional arrangements such as the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement, and then on to trade practice including import and export regulations and trade remedies such as antidumping and countervailing duties. The fourth part of the book (Chapters 13-16) focuses on transactional practice, including international sale of goods transactions, letters of credit, and a number of other arrangements such as distributorships and franchises that are commonly used in international business. International Business Transactions provides students with an opportunity to debate the merits of globalization, classify a good under the Harmonized Tariff System, and draft a clause to ensure that a foreign agent complies with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, all in the same class. This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.
