Drafting - import and export contracts

It is crucial that your international contracts are drafted and hedged very well. Unfortunately, many companies still dispatch their goods already after just an order via email and a bill of delivery (frequently using insufficient general terms and conditions as well). However, in difficult or complex legal jurisdictions it is more than advisable to not only rely on oral agreements but document every detail in a solid written contract, use the optimal ICC Incoterms (for risk distribution), agree on appropriate ways of financing, and carefully select the place of jurisdiction in order to ensure efficient enforceability.
