International trade and distribution law

Cross-border business relationships begin with initial contacts (non-disclosure agreements) and lead through phases of contract negotiation (letter of intent, memorandum of understanding, preliminary agreements) to the final conclusion of the contract and its implementation. This process regularly raises questions. These can be of a legal nature or arise due to the clash of different legal systems or different cultural approaches of the parties involved. Thanks to his many years of experience as head of the legal department of a listed company in Japan and his global network of competent contacts (especially in Asia), Marc Joost is the ideal contact person for questions concerning international trade and distribution law.
