The book is a definitive account of the law and practice of international commercial disputes in the English courts, which summarises the present state of the law, and articulates its underlying principles. It is intended to be accessible to non-specialist practitioners. Its examination of the subject is concise and highly focused, and gives comprehensive coverage of the issues of concern to practitioners.

Such topics as the developing law of cross-border injunctions, and the relationship between national and community law are extensively explored. Where the law is uncertain or controversial, the rival arguments are examined and assessed. The emphasis is on the solution of current (or future) problems, in addition to explaining contested issues. It is as much concerned with the impact of litigation on cross-border transactions - including prospective planning and risk-avoidance - as it is with dispute resolution.

It examines the scope of party choice, and the legal risks associated with cross-border business. Consideration is given as to how these risks might be avoided or reduced by planning or agreement, by adopting particular business structures, or by opting for alternative forms of dispute resolution. A feature of the book is its emphasis on evolving areas of practice, and issues of difficulty.

  • Definitive yet accessible account which presents the principles and current state of the law in a single volume
  • Combines a practical approach with an examination of underlying principles
  • Takes a problem-led approach directly addressing practical matters of importance to practitioners
  • Forward-looking in suggesting solutions to novel and emerging problems
