Private International Law & Comparative Law

Private international law and comparative law form the basis in cross-border advice, both in international contract drafting and in cross-border disputes. Due to their international focus, the lawyers of Brödermann Jahn deal with issues of private international law and comparative law on a daily basis and often "think along" with these issues.

Private international law is important in order to delimit the rights in question from each other. To do so, it uses international, European and national norms and a finely chiseled system of review in which a complex contract may raise numerous questions. For example, the law chosen for the contract does not automatically govern the form or issues of providing securities.

Comparative law is important because foreign legal instruments may be used if freely chosen. Above all it is important in order to understand the mindset of contracting parties and opponents in contentious proceedings and to align one's own actions accordingly.
