      Selling in the United States

      What are the primary measures to be implemented when selling products in the USA in order to prevent manufacturer liability risks? What are the essential precautions regarding contractual safeguards? Why do negotiations take a decisive role in relations with US operators? Why is the contract very often the only tool for governing relations between parties? What laws apply to sales transactions? Are Italian legal rulings recognised in the USA and vice versa? These and others are the themes which we have examined in our e-book “Selling in the United States”, albeit in a synthetic manner.

      The recovery of international receivables

      Autors: Gardenal Maurizio, Montana Christian
      Editore: Ipsoa
      Year: 2010
      Pages: XVI-304

      Stipulating a contract with a foreign counterpart may give rise to doubts and problems more complex and articulated than those generated by contractual relationships with national parties.

      The context in which a transaction with foreign countries is developed is, in fact, characterised by the diversity of legal systems, by the diversity of norms, customs, meaning attributed to terms of common use that suggest a careful screening of the various contractual clauses in order to determine the most suitable options.

      Factors such as currency, finance, credit, logistics and commercial issues, customs and habits, the choice of delivery terms, the forms of payment in use in individual countries, all these can, indeed, significantly affect the nature and content of a contractual relationship.

      The book deals with regulations affecting Italian operators involved in collecting receivables from foreign market territories.
      We examine the regulatory framework in force in the European Union, Italian rules of private and procedural international law and the main provisions of uniform law relating to the sale of movable property under the Vienna Convention.

      We then analyse the provisions that apply in some of the major countries, namely the US, China, Brazil, India, Turkey and Russia.
