Are International Contracts Effective and Enforceable?

This post reproduces, almost verbatim, a Quora question and my answer. Q. How effective and enforceable are contracts between parties located in the United States and England?

A. Such agreements can be effective and enforced – agreements between parties in different countries are entered into routinely.

The stickiest issue during negotiations may be selection of venue and jurisdiction and choice of law. These, in turn, will have a bearing on how certain provisions should be drafted.

Depending on the subject matter of the agreement, you may need to think about whether the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will be applicable and, if so, whether it should be disclaimed.
