International Commercial Law

Introduction

International Commercial Law - Research Guide International Law

International commercial law is a body of applicable rules, principles and customary practices that govern cross-border commercial activities of private parties. As such, international commercial law is part of private international law, while its international trade law counterpart, governing the trade relations between States, is part of international economic law, which is a branch of public international law. As rules, principles and customary practices applicable to cross-border transactions differ among cultures, there is a strong tendency for harmonization and unification of these.

  • Fernández Fernández, R., El Contrato Electrónico: Formación y Cumplimiento, Barcelona, Bosch, 2013.

    Fernández Fernández, R., El Contrato Electrónico: Formación y Cumplimiento, Barcelona, Bosch, 2013.

    La contratación a través de internet se ha convertido en sistema de contratación habitual, tanto en las relaciones con los consumidores como también en la contratación entre empresas. Y esta realidad actualmente alcanza no solamente a la contratación vía web sino también a otros entornos -como la que se realiza por e-mail- que en la contratación mercantil entre empresarios ha devenido una de las formas más corrientes en la dinámica de los negocios.
    En esta monografía el autor analiza los fundamentos de la contratación electrónica en sus diversas formas, y tanto en la contratación con consumidores como también entre empresarios. Desde la formación del contrato, los riesgos inherentes, el cumplimiento -con particular énfasis en la transmisión de bienes intangibles- , y los problemas de incumplimiento y extinción. Igualmente el libro da respuesta a los modernos problemas en torno al concepto, valor probatorio y alcance del documento electrónico, entendido en sentido amplio. Para ello el autor no se limita solamente a analizar la normativa específica de comercio electrónico y contratación on line, sino que realiza una interpretación de las bases de la contratación y su aplicación práctica actual al contrato electrónico.

    This textbook is designed for business majors or programs in related disciplines and business people whose work relates to international business. It gives students from many cultures and traditions a good look at the overall structure of the global ‘legal environment’ in which business operates today. The goal of this book is to highlight the major issues confronting  those individuals and companies who do business globally. No single legal system is emphasized; rather, materials and cases have been collected from many countries to show both the diversity and similarity of business and of the law. Special treatment is given to global legal issues in intellectual property, foreign investment, money and banking, sales, transportation and financing.

  • Pilar Diago Diago, M. del, Las Cartas de Patrocinio en los Negocios Internacionales: Estudio Jurídico, Cizur Menor, Thomson Reuters Aranzadi, 2012.

    Pilar Diago Diago, M. del, Las Cartas de Patrocinio en los Negocios Internacionales: Estudio Jurídico, Cizur Menor, Thomson Reuters Aranzadi, 2012.
    Las Cartas de Patrocinio constituyen una garantía personal atípica, en la mayoría de los Derechos estatales, que responde a las necesidades de seguridad y versatilidad del tráfico económico internacional y que, por ello, son utilizadas profusamente en el ámbito de los negocios transfronterizos con especial preferencia a otro tipo de garantías personales. Son piezas clave en la transacción internacional del crédito bancario, y plantean una rica problemática, que se ve agravada por la ausencia de normas de conflicto en los Reglamentos de la Unión Europea y en los diferentes Derechos Internacionales Privados de los países de nuestro entorno, incluido el español. Esta obra, pionera en la Doctrina internacional privatista española, aborda el estudio de las Cartas de Patrocinio en el contexto económico y financiero actual. Se adentra en el análisis de su perfil multiforme y su resiliencia, tomando como referencia modelos reales de Cartas de Patrocinio, utilizados en el ámbito mercantil y financiero internacional, y analiza el problema de su calificación jurídica, a la luz de la normativa de la Unión Europea. El enfoque práctico de éste estudio, la adopción del método de calificación autónoma y su aplicación a las diferentes clases de Cartas de Patrocinio, conduce a buscar y a encontrar las soluciones más eficientes, de Derecho Internacional Privado de la Unión Europea, a los diferentes supuestos de litigación internacional, que tienen como protagonistas estas peculiares formas de garantía.

  • Lianos, I. and D.D. Sokol (eds.), The Global Limits of Competition Law, Stanford, Stanford Law Books, 2012.

    Lianos, I. and D.D. Sokol (eds.), The Global Limits of Competition Law, Stanford, Stanford Law Books, 2012.

    Over the last three decades, the field of antitrust law has grown increasingly prominent, and more than one hundred countries have enacted competition law statutes. As competition law expands to jurisdictions with very different economic, social, cultural, and institutional backgrounds, the debates over its usefulness have similarly evolved. This book, the first in a new series on global competition law, critically assesses the importance of competition law, its development and modern practice, and the global limits that have emerged. This volume will be a key resource to both scholars and practitioners interested in antitrust, competition law, economics, business strategy, and administrative sciences.

  • Mousseron, J.-M. (et al.), Droit du commerce international: Droit international de l'entreprise, Paris, LexisNexis, 2012.

    Mousseron, J.-M. (et al.), Droit du commerce international: Droit international de l'entreprise, Paris, LexisNexis, 2012.
    Ce manuel de Droit du commerce international rassemble les différents corps de règles applicables à l’activité internationale de l’entreprise et ordinairement dispersées : règles de conflits de lois, règles matérielles d’origine nationale, internationale ou professionnelle, règles d’or de droit fiscal, systématiquement envisagées pour chaque question traitée. L’ouvrage étudie les aspects internationaux des sociétés (nationalité, régime de la société étrangère en France, faillite internationale) puis les opérations du commerce international. Celles-là sont abordées méthodiquement, sous un tour concret (vente, transferts de techniques, droit du travail, droit des marchés et de la sous-traitance, transport, assurance, commerce électronique, instruments financiers du commerce international… ) et opérationnel (stratégies d’installation de l’entreprise à l’étranger). Le Droit du commerce international vivifie encore la théorie des sources du Droit : le thème de la lex mercatoria est illustré dans ses manifestations les plus contemporaines, qu’il s’agisse des règles publiées par la CCI, des principes Unidroit ou européens des contrats. Outre l’étude des grandes conventions internationales (conventions de Vienne sur la vente internationale, de Rome sur la loi applicable aux obligations contractuelles, d’Ottawa sur l’affacturage et le crédit-bail international…), l’ouvrage est à jour des derniers textes communautaires qui intéressent la matière (Règl. n° 1346/2000 sur les procédures d’insolvabilité ; Règl. n° 44/2001 sur la compétence judiciaire et l’exécution des décisions…) mais aussi des textes internationaux (conventions CNUDCI sur le commerce et la signature électroniques, ou sur la cession de créance internationale). Ce manuel a été réalisé par des universitaires et professionnels au fait des thèmes abordés.

  • Goode, R. (eds.) (et al.), Transnational Commercial Law: International Instruments and Commentary, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2012.

    Goode, R. (eds.) (et al.), Transnational Commercial Law: International Instruments and Commentary, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2012.

    Transnational commercial law represents the outcome of work undertaken to harmonize national laws affecting domestic and cross-border transactions and is upheld by a diverse spectrum of instruments. Now in its second edition, this authoritative work brings together the major instruments in this field, dividing them into thirteen groups: Treaty Law, Contracts, Electronic Commerce, International Sales, Agency and Distribution, International Credit Transfers and Bank Payment Undertakings, International Secured Transactions, Cross-Border Insolvency, Securities Custody, Clearing and Settlement and Securities Collateral, Conflict of Laws, Civil Procedure, Commercial Arbitration, and a new section on Carriage of Goods. Each group of instruments is preceded by linking text which provides important context by identifying the key instruments in each group, discussing their purposes and relationships, and explaining the major provisions of each instrument, thus setting them in their commercial context. This volume is unique in providing the full text of international conventions, including the preamble – which is important for interpretation – and the final clauses and any annexes. In addition, each instrument is accompanied by a complete list of dates of signature and ratification by all contracting states, all easily navigated through the detailed tables of contents which precedes it. This fully-indexed work provides an indispensable guide for the practitioner or academic to the primary transnational commercial law instruments.
