International legal consulting

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.
