Private international law

Private international law includes all the rules applicable to the relations of natural or legal persons of different nationalities and aims to resolve conflicts of laws arising from their relations. In particular, private international law establishes rules to determine the jurisdiction competent to decide any disputes, the law applicable to their relations, and to obtain recognition and enforcement of foreign decisions on national territory or national decisions on foreign territories.

Faber Inter Legal has developed extensive expertise in private international law, both in the negotiation, drafting and analysis of international contracts (sales, commercial agency, distribution, …) and in the settlement of disputes arising in connection with these contracts, but also in personal law and more particularly in matters of succession.

Whether it involves assisting you in the definition of international legal and commercial strategies or the settlement of disputes involving foreign elements, experienced lawyers are able to guide you in the context of your international relations in terms of:

  • Drafting of tailor-made contracts
  • Analysis of the issues presented by existing contracts with regard to the determination of the applicable law and the competent jurisdiction
  • Definition of the procedural strategy taking into account the foreign elements presented by the litigation
  • Analysis of the issues and risks involved in the application of foreign law
  • Procedure in recognition and enforcement of foreign decisions (exequatur).
