To successfully compete in today’s global marketplace, companies must strategically conduct cross-border trade and commerce while remaining mindful of domestic and international statutes and regulations governing exports, imports, international finance, overseas investments and the general conduct of business in or involving foreign jurisdictions. Increasingly, many international businesses are utilizing dispute resolution alternatives – such as arbitration – in an effort to avoid the national courts of their counterparts, ensure maximum enforceability of the ultimate rendered decision, expedite the resolution of such disputes, avoid excessive discovery, minimize costs and avail themselves of a range of other advantages not found in the courtroom.
