|This looseleaf work provides an overview of commercial litigation procedure and its judges and practitioners in the courts of the important commercial countries throughout the world. The basic work includes sections on Argentina, Belgium, Bermuda, Brazil, Canada, China (PRC), Denmark, Egypt, England and Wales, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Jersey, Korea, Kuwait, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Uruguay, and the United States.|
Subsequent supplements update current material and have introduced several new sections, including East European, Far Eastern, and South American jurisdictions, and new material on limitation.
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.
