Transnational Litigation and Commercial Arbitration is a case-oriented study of the key rules and procedures that regulate the resolution of commercial disputes arising in a transnational context. The study explains and compares European and American rules of private international and procedural law. Each main case is introduced both by a paradigm model, emphasizing and simplifying the key operative facts, as well as by a doctrinal presentation of the main issues and sources of American, European, or international law concerned. The court decisions themselves are all extensively edited and annotated by the authors. This 4th Edition, which has been completely revised and updated, takes account of recent developments in American law, including recent Supreme Court decisions on the exercise of juridical jurisdiction, and European law, including the Brussels I Regulation recast, effective within the European Union as of 2015. Transnational Litigation and Commercial Arbitration is suitable for use in upper-level courses in American, European, and Comparative Law. It also serves as a useful reference for practitioners.
