International Trade

International trade is a key aspect of many businesses’ development. With the rise of globalisation, a thorough knowledge of the law on international commerce has become indispensable. Germany is party to several international treaties which means legal certainty is assured when trading internationally with German businesses or when trading as a German business with international partners.

Obtaining legal advice before entering an international transaction can save time and money should a dispute subsequently arise as to the parties’ rights and duties. Here you can find an overview of the legal aspects to consider when conducting international business.
