Sooner or later, each company will also face litigation in the settlement of international trade agreements. That is why it is also necessary to reach an agreement on the competent jurisdiction to decide the dispute. Of course, that doesn`t tell you everything you need to know about contracts, but it`s a good place to start. If you have the five key elements of a contract, you have a binding agreement, but to give yourself the best protection, you still have to think: do you know what you need to enter into a contract? You thought there was a contract, but the agreement was not binding? Did you enter into a binding contract thinking you wanted to reach another agreement? The absence of a signature would normally indicate that the parties are not yet at the point where they have agreed to be linked. However, if there is evidence to the contrary.

It is precisely in the international context and when one or more countries are involved that this legislative choice is even more important. For example, the parties may be in different countries. The place of execution may be another country. In these cases, therefore, there are several legal systems that may be relevant to the treaty. It is all the more important to regulate existing legislation in advance. The existence of a legally binding agreement depends on the presence of all the elements of a contractual relationship. If this is the case, the document could be an «intermediate contract» until a full formal agreement is concluded or a simple contract in its current form. If all the elements are not in place, the pre-contracting documents may simply be an agreement that can be reached and such an agreement will not be legally binding.
