Fewer margins, indirect damage, judicial appeals... For small and medium-sized companies, the consequences of a business contract not properly clinched can be disastrous. In order to avoid such litigation, to manage the risks and not to go to court, a well drafted business contract is indispensable, in France and on an international level. This course puts the focus on the essential aspects of International Contract Law and proposes rules enabling to draft and negotiate contracts. Numerous contract terms and examples of contracts are analyzed. This teaching is thus very practical so that students may identify and assess the risks for business operations.
Many contracts are presented such as the sale contract, the retailer contract, the sales rep contract, consultancy, technical support and the know-how license.
