Provisions of commercial contract in China
When it comes to performing trading activities in China, all businesses must be carried out through a commercial contract, which states obligations of both trading parties. Our lawyers in China advise you to include dispute resolution clauses and governing law clauses in the contract, to plan in advance in what way both parties want any disputes to be resolved.
Chinese law restricts both the types of resolution mechanisms and the choice of law that can be used in Chinese commercial contracts; you need legal assistance for trading in China from our Chinese attorneys so that the contract is drafted carefully, in the local language. A commercial contract should also stipulate that the company will have to make use of the litigation procedure and the parties will resolve the case through the court system in China.
