This book presents student-oriented materials focused on critical legal aspects of international business transactions. The materials navigate the breadth and complexity of the subject by focusing on selected topic areas that introduce students to the ways in which the international context shapes basic business transactions, using trade in goods and services as the primary illustration. Both the private side of such transactions and the roles of domestic governments and intentional organizations are examined. With the untrained student lawyer in mind, the choice of materials, legal issues, and problems reflects an emphasis on, and provides opportunities for, skills development and practical lawyering. The second edition of International Business Transactions is designed to encourage students to take a more active role in their learning by focusing on problem solving, while also providing extensive explanatory material.

Release Date: 2008-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

Doing International Business? Here are the Tools! Power Tools for Negotiating International Deals is a nuts and bolts guide. This book is the handbook read before the negotiation. It is also to be used during the negotiation when a decision to stand firm or compromise must be made. Power Tools for Negotiating International Deals shows how international business works, where to stake high ground, what concessions to make, and what mistakes to avoid. Filled with checklists and case examples, these are the power tools needed for negotiating business deals in the global marketplace. When negotiating an international deal, there is often only one good opportunity to strike the bargain and make the deal. To do so, a businessperson needs tools to know what to ask for, what to counter with, and what to offer up as a reasonable compromise. That is how deals get done. Without knowing the terms that would make the best international deal, the deal may still get done and– it just will not be the best that could have been negotiated. Power Tools for Negotiating International Deals explains the key issues that need to be negotiated in an international business deal, be it a product sale, agency/brokerage, consulting agreement, distributorship, license, joint venture or consortium. Some of the topics covered in this book: the basics of international business deals negotiating international sales of goods and services negotiating international agency and consulting deals negotiating international distribution deals negotiating international license deals negotiating international joint venture and consortium deals James M. Klotz is one of Canadaand’s leading international business lawyers. In addition to cochairing the International Business Transactions group of one of Canadaand’s largest law firms, he has written several books and treatises on international business law and negotiation. He has taught courses in international business law at Osgoode Hall Law School, Toronto, and in international risk assessment at the University of Toronto, School of Continuing Studies. When not flying around the world on deals, he lives and works in Toronto.

A Handbook of Globalisation and Environmental Policy Second Edition

Author: Frank Wijen
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
ISBN: 9781849805773
Release Date: 2012-01-01
Genre: Political Science

Acclaim for the first edition: ÔThis is undoubtedly a useful collection of essays for environmental policy-makers and anyone interested in the relationship between national government and transnational forces. . . the collection brings together some interesting perspectives and should prove a useful complement to the existing political sociology of the environment.Õ Ð International Sociology Ð Review of Books ÔThe Handbook of Globalisation and Environmental Policy is a very important book. More than 40 experienced authors, including some of the most important international thought leaders of our time, have confronted a crucial question: How can and should national governments come to grips with the need for global action on a wide range of increasingly urgent environmental challenges that exceed their authority and capability? Through close examination of numerous case studies, a balanced perspective that takes government, business and civil society into account, and fresh interdisciplinary thinking about a range of policy tools, the Handbook offers a treasure-trove of new concepts and new perspectives. The authors conclude that by acknowledging the ongoing erosion of national sovereignty and accepting the growing need to work together in supranational forums, national governments can, in fact, increase their capacity to shape their own destiny.Õ Ð Lawrence Susskind, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US ÔIn an increasingly interdependent world, global forces affect both the design and effectiveness of environmental policy. This Handbook provides an unusually creative and comprehensive guide, not only to the nature of these forces and their impacts, but also to how a better understanding of these forces can provide a foundation for improving the effectiveness of environmental policy.Õ Ð Tom Tietenberg, Colby College, US In the current era of globalisation, national governments are increasingly exposed to international influences that present new constraints and opportunities for domestic environmental policies. This comprehensive, revised Handbook pushes the frontiers of theoretical and empirical knowledge, and provides a state-of-the-art examination of the multifaceted effects of globalisation on environmental governance. Including substantially revised as well as new contributions from leading authorities, the Handbook offers an insightful overview of recent developments at the intersection of globalisation and national environmental policy. It covers themes including national regimes, trade rules, types of goods, federalism, innovation, standards, citizen-consumers, developing countries, policy networks, partnerships, and carbon trading. The HandbookÕs depth and scope will appeal to a broad and varied readership, across academics, students, and policy-makers interested in public and private governance, environmental economics, international relations, environmental politics and law, sociology, and political science.

Arbitration and Mediation in International Business

Author: Christian Bühring-Uhle
Publisher: Kluwer Law International B.V.
ISBN: 9789041122568
Release Date: 2006-01-01
Genre: Law

"Arbitration and mediation in international business was first published in 1996 and was one of the first comprehensive studies on the practice of international business dispute resolution, covering both international commercial arbitration and the so-called ?alternative? techniques such as mediation. The book also provided an empirical analysis of how both arbitration and mediation are conducted in a crossborder context, along with a normative guide to the relative costs and benefits of these two methods. This second edition is not just an updated version of the first edition but a new book in itself: Benefitting from the contributions of two co-authors, the work has been enhanced by discussions of innovative tools for making settlement negotiations more effective, and by the in-depth analysis of practical techniques to integrate mediation and arbitration in international business. Also, a comprehensive new empirical survey was conducted in order to capture new trends in this rapidly developing field. The result is a ?must have? resource for anyone having to deal with potential conflict in international business relationships."--Publisher's website.

Rules and Networks

Author: Richard P. Appelbaum
Publisher: Hart Publishing
ISBN: 9781841132969
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Law

International business transactions are heavily influenced by culture, practice and rule. The pursuit of business relationships within nation-states can be subject to differences in the generation of norms and the processing of disputes, but these conflicts are magnified many times over in cross-border transactions where nation-state control and support is weak or absent. This book seeks different explanations of the ways in which business people and their legal advisers try to minimize the effect of these magnified difficulties. At the outset, four sources are suggested through which the international business community might be considered to have supplemented nation-state conflict prevention and dispute resolution institutions - an international legal order, the development of a private normative order based on common business practices (denominated the lex mercatoria), through the efforts and work product of internationalized law firms, and by means of extensive, thick personal relationships often referred to by their Chinese term guanxi. Since most explanations are dominated by North American and European legal scholarship and practice, a second concern of this book is to open up the discussion to competing explanatory frameworks. Specifically, it develops the notion that global legal convergence may not be the immediate, inevitable result of increased global economic interaction. Rather, less formal mechanisms for achieving normative understanding and predictability in business dealings may also flourish.
