The National Law Review is pleased to bring you information about the upcoming ICC Conference Cross-Border Sales in London April 19, 2012:
What is the Best Legal Framework for Business-to-Business Contracts?
Thursday, 19 April 2012
London, United Kingdom
The contract of sale is certainly the most commonly used agreement in international commerce. When drafting a sales contract or general conditions of sale (or purchase) to be used in cross border trade, it is essential to choose the legal framework (applicable law) within which the agreement is to be placed.
Choosing one solution instead of another may have very important effects on the rights and obligations of the parties. Parties therefore need to have the information which is necessary in order to make the best possible choice between the various alternatives.
The speakers will examine and discuss on one side the project of a Common European Sales Law, which has been recently proposed by the European Commission, and on the other side the CISG (Vienna Sales Convention), which is the law applicable to cross-border sales in most countries of the world.
Members of the ICC task force that has been revising the ICC Model International Sales Contract will also take the opportunityto discuss their approach and present issues that have been the subject of relevant discussion.
Who should attend?
Legal directors and corporate counsel from companies involved in international trade, practising lawyers, legal practitioners advising international trading companies, business people involved in international trade and dispute resolution
