About Employment and Commercial Disputes: The International Aspects

A guide to the conflict of laws dealing with jurisdiction and applicable law in commercial and employment-related cases enabling practitioners to assimilate and understand the rules which apply in cases that have an international element.

Commercial claims have long had an international element and the same is increasingly true for employment cases in particular in employee competition or team moves where, for example, a defendant in country A is orchestrating a team move in country B. This book assists practitioners by having the law relevant to these sorts of cases in one place in an easy to understand manner. It states the law applicable in particular to both commercial and employment cases. This covers both High Court claims but also, in its employment section, statutory claims involving employees who work abroad or otherwise may be said to lack a connection with the UK.

It uses examples to augment the statement of the law and offers tactical and strategic guidance based on real cases.

As well as providing a guide to the law, comment on the strategy and tactics underlying claims and defences are provided and examples of how these matters can and do play out in practice are given.

“A comprehensive and accessible account of international disputes, offering a wealth of reference material and practical and tactical guidance…Apart from the author's impressive mastery and accessible exposition of the complications of what used to be called 'conflict of laws', what is particularly valuable about this book is the extensive number of case studies it includes covering employment and commercial dispute scenarios…This book is a tremendous achievement and will be well worth having to hand when those tricky conflicts questions crop up.” –  ELA Briefing

“...I purchased a copy of [this] book this week and it is marvellous. I am sure it is going to be a very useful resource on the gateways and choice of law, and Lugano, if that happens! I am in particular looking forward to reading the specific chapters in Part II. I have read today the Team Move chapter and enjoyed it immensely.” –  Ben Phelps, Barrister
