International contracts 

Do you conduct business across the border? In this case, it is important to have good business contracts in place. With international contracts, there are a number of extra points of interest: which law is applicable to the agreement? After all, the law is different in every country. Are you going to contract under the law of your business partner or your own law?  

And when a conflict arises: which court is competent to rule on the conflict? Your judge or the judge residing in the country of your debtor? What is most advantageous for your situation is different for each situation. Whatever you choose, it is important to record this properly, otherwise it can lead to complicated situations. For example, if your debtor is German, a German judge has to judge according to your law. This is highly undesirable because the German judge has no knowledge of your law. Always ask for advice from a specialist. Our international lawyers will be happy to help you draw up your international agreement. 

Legal conflicts 

Although with a good contract you can avoid most legal conflicts, it is of course always possible that a discussion or conflict arises with your business partner. In this case, wcan also assist you. We always do our utmost to resolve any conflict for your organisation as quickly and as well as possible. And we prefer to do so without the intervention of a judge. Is going to court unavoidable? Then we will assist you during the legal proceedings and fight for the best result for your organisation.

Terminating a contract 

If you want to end the collaboration with another party, you can choose to end the contract. You can terminate a contract prematurely however, keep in mind that this can have consequences for your organisation. For example, you may have to pay compensation to the other party because the partnership has been terminated. 

Always ask a specialist for advice on your rights and obligations regarding the termination of a contract. This way, you will prevent the termination of a cooperation from turning into a legal conflict.
