Commercial practice in the 21st century is essentially internationalized. International flows of goods amount to more than 19 billion euros, the players in these exchanges are diversified and can be multinationals or even local producers. All use an essential tool to enjoy their business: the international contract.
The international contract is a contract that has an element of extraterrestriality, i.e. the contract is in contact with one or more foreign legal orders. In practical terms, the element of extraterrestriality may be the foreign home of one of the parties to the contract, his nationality, the place of conclusion of the contract, and many other possibilities. For example, it is a contract between a French sales agent and an American contractor or a contract between a French company and a German electronics supplier.
There are many questions in these situations:
- What law is applicable to the contract?
- Who will settle the case?
- In which language will the procedure take place? How to execute a foreign judgment in France, or vice versa, execute a French judgment abroad?
All these issues are settled by national, European and international law. This right is essentially based on the principle of contractual freedom, but which nevertheless suffers from certain exceptions. Dispute resolution requires the intervention of a specialist lawyer as the nature of international business activities can be complex.
