Our advocates (attorneys-at-law) prepare international commercial agreements of various types (contracts for purchase and sales, delivery, works or services, as well as franchise, leasing, agency, distribution agreements etc.) or provide a legal analysis of contracts and other documents submitted by clients.
Our advocates (attorneys-at-law) are qualified to assist clients in the process of commercial negotiations, including those where parties discuss the terms and conditions of their future commercial agreements. Such assistance of lawyers that are not only extensively experienced in the field of law but also fluent in foreign languages may help the negotiating parties to reach agreement and, accordingly, include in the contract the terms and conditions that are more favorable to the person whose interests are represented by the lawyers.
We can say from our experience that a professional drafting of an international commercial contract (which has to reflect the features of legal traditions of countries of the parties to the contract) performed by a lawyer specialized in the field of international commercial law allows to avoid legal errors and imprecise wording of the contract, which facilitates the protection of the client’s interests in case of litigation or arbitration.Back to Previous Page
