The work in an international context of different legal systems can bring about conflicts of law. To overcome such conflicts, there are “Conflicts of Law”-rules – also known as “Private International Law” – which determine the applicable law in all private business or other matters. Conflicts of Law is therefore the “key” to the selection of the right legal framework for any international business or other relationship.
The “Conflicts of Law”-rules are partly contained in international treaties, partly in special law of regions of the world (such as European law) and, to a large part, it is part of national or state rules or the product of court decisions. Often, it is necessary to apply a combination of these different sources of law. The global network of Primerus lawyers provides a sound basis for a professional scouting through these legal hurdles.
