For small and medium-sized businesses, going global is a good thing. Goods and services sold in international markets can bring all kinds of gains to a business. A business that is going to participate in international markets and reap the benefits must know the pitfalls and navigate those pitfalls. One of biggest issues we advise small–and–medium–sized businesses on is negotiating dispute resolution clauses in international business contracts. A dispute resolution clause can determine who hears the dispute, where the dispute is heard, what procedural rules apply to hearing the dispute, among other determinations. We have advice our clients on arbitration under the UNICITRAL Arbitration Rules, the ICC Rules, the LCIA Rules, the SIAC Rules, the HKIAC Rules, the CIETAC Rules, among others.
