Contract Disputes

Perhaps you are already working with a company overseas but have hit a snag in your business relationship. Our experience in working with clients on international matters has shown that business conflict abroad generally mirrors domestic business conflict. Yet we work to understand the nuances of working with a particular country’s company so that our legal service addresses your problem specifically. Handling matters ranging from nonpayment to product quality and performance.

Our many years’ experience in international business, arbitration and litigation teach us that the outcome of international disputes is often determined by a well-drafted dispute resolution provision in the business contract or early decisive action in the arbitration or litigation. Particularly in international matters, disputes can be avoided or resolved if you act rather than react. We guide you from the initial contract drafting – (do you choose arbitration or litigation, which nation’s law applies, in what nations’ courts can the action be brought?) – through the prosecution and resolution of your dispute through negotiation, arbitration or litigation. We know the courts and arbitral tribunals best applicable to your matter, be they in Florida (Court of International Trade), Stockholm or Hong Kong. Our worldwide contacts include lawyers, experts, translators, process servers and consultants. Let us help you manage and resolve your international trade matter or conflict or draft tailored contract provisions to provide you efficient and effective resolution of any dispute which may arise.

Important to our international practice is our ongoing experience with contracts, trade and disputes. We stay abreast of the changing international business and legal climates.
