International Legal Consulting
If you are currently buying products or services from another country, selling your products or services to a business in another country, or entering into financial dealings that cross national borders, it is likely that these transactions will be subject to the laws of a foreign jurisdiction.
Likewise, when you or your business enters into an agreement or contract with an offshore individual or other entity, your ability to enforce that contract and/or the enforcement measures available to the entity with whom you have contracted may be governed by the local law of that foreign jurisdiction.
It is important to remember that subtle differences in law can have far reaching effects on your business. Some countries have little or no interest in protecting your intellectual property claims, and/or make little or no effort to interfere with pirating of your products, ideas, or creative content. You may also run into problems with regard to shipping documentation, customs clearance, insurance, tariffs and other assorted issues that can function to delay the receipt of goods or even create a potential default in your agreement through no fault of your own. You may also be subject to local licensing and registration rules based on the type of business you are engaged in.
