Product description

Managing Legal Risk in International Business
In an increasingly global economy, more Canadian businesses will vigorously pursue international business opportunities, whether by exporting a successful product, providing services in another jurisdiction, or establishing a foreign presence. To do so successfully, business managers and lawyers must understand the laws that govern these activities both in Canada and the international context. These laws include:
  • Public international laws - commonly found in international trade treaties
  • Private international laws - national laws that govern an international business project
  • Laws governing the import and export of goods to and from Canada - encompassing sanctions, controls, tariffs, trade law remedies, and safeguards
International Business Law for Canadians - A Practical Guide explains the public and private international laws that students, lawyers, and managers need to know in order to conduct and advise on international business projects. Throughout the book, legal analysis goes beyond "black letter law" to enhance readers' understanding of the purpose and application of different areas of law. Readers also gain valuable risk management strategies and tips.
