Importing tomatoes from Italy, selling a machine to Russia, opening an establishment in Poland or marketing Danish living and housing concepts in Germany – all these cross – border transactions are for many entrepreneurs a most natural thing in order to hold their own position in the market and further develop themselves.
In this context, many complicated legal questions may arise and proper handling of these questions is vital in order to avoid any future cost consuming legal disputes. It is important to stipulate the applicable law and to tailor the contract accordingly. It is also recommended that the contract should be subject to neutral International arbitration instead of state courts in case of any controversies that may arise.
Derra, Meyer & Partners can offer you legal assistance in all these transactions – both out of court through counseling and by drawing up ofcontracts, as well as in court by conducting or coordinating lawsuits or arbitration proceedings but also by way of judicial enforcement through our partners abroad. Purchase and sale contracts according to UN sales law, distribution agreements with commercial agents or authorized dealers, the establishment of companies or even “just” the collection of claims are only some of the areas Derra, Meyer & Partners cover across the borders.
Our being members and active supporters of International bar associations and professional organizations, such as the Working Committee on International Juridical Relations of the German Bar Association or the European lawyer’s network DIRO certainly facilitate our work in these fields.
