Compared to domestic transactions, the risks associated with international sales are greatly multiplied. It is a rare international sales agreement that can rely on minor variations of standard terms, as is so often the case in domestic agreements. Foreign laws, export/import and currency exchange controls, treaties, transit issues, inspection of goods, insurance, tariffs--all these and more must be taken into account in contract negotiations. This is the second edition, expanded and updated, of an enormously useful book that guides practitioners through the process of drawing up sound agreements for the international sale of goods. Organised according to the framework of an annotated agreement, with detailed commentary on each provision, it incorporates hundreds of model clauses designed to cover every contingency, including such factors as the following (and a great deal more): definitions; Incoterms; price adjustments; documentation; labelling; delivery dates; transportation modes; limitation of liability; confidentiality; arbitration; and antitrust issues. Although the clauses are drawn without reference to any particular country, relevant national circumstances are covered in the commentary to each clause. Appendices reprint the texts of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG), the UNIDROIT Principles, and the Principles of European Contract Law. For lawyers charged with drafting an international sales contract, this book is invaluable. Clause by clause, it clearly details the drafting process, commenting expertly on every issue likely to arise as it goes. It would be hard to find a more useful guide.

This book presents the reflections of a group of researchers interested in assessing whether the law governing the promotion and protection of foreign investment reflects sound public policy. Whether it is the lack of "checks and balances" on investor rights or more broadly the lack of balance between public rights and private interests, the time is ripe for an in-depth discussions of current challenges facing the international investment law regime. Through a survey of the evolution in IIA treaty-making and an evaluation from different perspectives, the authors take stock of developments in international investment law and analyze potential solutions to some of the criticisms that plague IIAs. The book takes a multidisciplinary approach to the subject, with expert analysis from legal, political and economic scholars. The first part of the book traces the evolution of IIA treaty-making whilst the other three parts are organised around the concepts of efficiency, legitimacy and sustainability. Each contributor analyzes one or more issues related to substance, treaty negotiation, or dispute resolution, with the ultimate aim of improving IIA treaty-making in these respects. Improving International Investment Agreements will be of particular interest to students and academics in the fields of International Investment Law, International Trade Law, Business and 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 - 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 Canada's leading international business lawyers. In addition to cochairing the International Business Transactions group of one of Canada'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.
