Fundamentals of International Business Transactions

ISBN: 9789041196323
Release Date: 2000-07-28
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 and Economics Law and Policy

Author: Paul B. Stephan
Publisher: LexisNexis
ISBN: 9780327174677
Release Date: 2010-08-16
Genre: Law

The First Edition of this text was written at a time when the structures of international relations were undergoing a profound transformation, with the collapse of Soviet-style communism just behind us and the creation of NAFTA and the WTO just ahead. The Second Edition came at a time when NAFTA and the WTO had taken shape but not yet acquired a history. At the time of the Third Edition, both of those structures can be studied in detail and their ramifications for the world economy can be better appreciated. In the interim, the Internet has established itself as a presence in innumerable firms and households, and the dot com bubble has come and gone. The services-oriented information economy seems no longer to be emerging, but rather a fundamental aspect of contemporary business. The Fourth Edition of International Business and Economics reflects the growth and development of the global economy as well as the way law schools prepare lawyers to work in that world. The book was written in the shadow of a financial crisis that seemed at times destined to bring international economic catastrope, but which so far has been grim but not disastrous. The book has been revised more comprehensively than any of the earlier successor editions. For example, materials on international civil litigation have largely dropped out and correspondingly more materials on international investment arbitration and WTO dispute resolution, as well as the interaction between those bodies of law and national law have been added. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
