Dear members, dear colleagues,


The UIA is pleased to invite you to attend its Drafting Effective International Contracts: Workshop-seminar on International Sales, Agency and Distributorship Contractsto be held in Athens on September 12 & 13, 2014.


Only 1 month left to benefit from the early bird rate! Sign up now, before you become the angry bird!


A growing number of companies are expanding their activity beyond the national borders and are faced with the issues regarding the negotiation and the drafting of International contracts. In fact, even within a “common” market like the European Union the laws are different from country to country and businessmen selling to other countries are forced to deal with the complex issues arising in the context of international contracts.


The purpose of this workshop-seminar is to analyze the basic issues of cross-border contracts with reference to three types of contracts more commonly used by those who approach a foreign market (sales, commercial agency, distributorship), and at the same time to focus on the drafting of the clauses more commonly used. In other terms, the seminar intends to give the participants a clear overview of the basic principles governing international contracts, together with a practical discussion and exercise on the implementation of such principles though clear and effective contractual clauses.


In order to attain this goal, we have selected a group of highly qualified speakers having at the same time a high-level profile and a practical experience in drafting and negotiating International contracts.
