The rapid, recent increase in transnational commercial litigation has made it even more necessary for lawyers to understand how claims are litigated in the courts of other countries. Yet information on court procedure, the local legal profession, and local judiciaries has not been readily available without specialist advice from local lawyers. This advice raises costs and may result in delays. This loose-leaf work provides an overview of commercial litigation procedure and its judges and practitioners in the courts of the important commercial countries throughout the world.

Each section gives a general account of the structure of the courts and their jurisdictions, civil litigation procedures in each country concerned, the local legal profession, local specialist areas and charges, and the local judiciary. The section then traces in detail each country's procedural steps for typical kinds of commercial litigation, such as claims for breach of sale of goods contracts, claims for damages under charter parties, claims relating to bank deposits, claims to enforce foreign judgements and arbitration awards, admiralty claims, and claims for breach of copyright and trademarks. The uniform subject matter of the different national sections permits ease of same-claim comparisons between different jurisdictions.
