About Commercial Issues in Private International Law

As people, business, and information cross borders, so too do legal disputes. Globalisation means that courts need to apply principles of private international law with increasing frequency. Thus, as the Law Society of New South Wales recognised in its 2017 report The Future of Law and Innovation in the Profession, knowledge of private international law is increasingly important to legal practice. In particular, it is essential to the modern practice of commercial law.

This book considers key issues at the intersection of commercial law and private international law. The authors include judges, academics and practising lawyers, from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom. They bring a common law perspective to contemporary problems concerning the key issues in private international law: jurisdiction, choice of law, and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. The book also addresses issues of evidence and procedure in cross-border litigation, and the impact of recent developments at the Hague Conference on Private International Law, including the Convention on Choice of Court Agreements on common law principles of private international law.

Commercial Issues in Private International Law will be of interest to those seeking a well-reasoned analysis of some contemporary issues in commercial private international law. One message that is likely to resonate is the importance of private international law to modern legal practice in Australia.” –  Sarah McKibbin, University of Southern Queensland, University of Queensland Law Journal

“This book is commended for its high standard chapters in the areas of jurisdiction, foreign judgments, choice of law and emerging law, and the synthesising chapters by Justices Rares and Brereton. It would be a valuable addition to any commercial lawyer's library, and is a clarion call to get private international law into the mainstream law curriculum.” –  Matt Harvey, Victoria Law School, Law Institute Journal
