Cross-border business relationships, from the first contacts (non-disclosure agreements), through phases of contract negotiation (letter of intent, memorandum of understanding, preliminary contracts), to the final conclusion of the contract, raise a variety of questions that are not known in national transactions due to the clash of differently preconceived ideas of the parties involved and different legal systems.

Piltz Legal offers you many years of experience and comprehensive expertise for the accompaniment of your international commercial contracts. We support you in preparing and conducting contract negotiations, formulate internationally robust contract texts for you and assist you in all related legal matters.

In international contracts, the validity of German law is often provided for. It is often overlooked that such clauses are not accepted worldwide and, moreover, some foreign law can also be quite advantageous for the German party.

The recent emergence of national compartmentalisation tendencies poses particular challenges in order to ensure reliable contract performance at the same time.
