FZD Associates - International Trade Contracts

Business tends to be more international than ever.  Commerce crosses borders not only within the European Union which guarantees free movement of goods and services but often enough involves interacting with parties outside the European Union and vice versa.

At Francis Zammit Dimech Associates we have the experience and know how to deal with your requirements in this area.

Drafting of international trade contracts requires the ability to network with professionals in other jurisdictions to ensure that the contract is binding for all the parties doing commerce with each other in different countries.  But drafting is only one part of a more complex picture. We would assist with negotiations, representation, and looking into fiscal issues that are of utmost importance to clients.

Particular attention is given to non disclosure and non circumvention, applicable law, mediation and arbitration procedures as well as country of jurisdiction.

We are also experienced about the intercultural dimension of such contracts that needs to be factored in from the very beginning.

Whether the international trade contract assumes the format of a joint venture agreement, one of agency, supply, franchising, mandate or other forms of obligation, our duty would be to produce a contract that suits your requirements and needs and that you will enjoy peace of mind about its remaining an effective tool to conduct your business for the future.
