Overview

Further to their recent article "Common pitfalls in cross-border transactions: how to avoid them and how to react when disputes arise", Eversheds discusses the recent case of Presstek Europe Ltd v Multi-Digital De Impresion SL.


The case confirms that the failure to include a binding law and jurisdiction clause in a contract can give rise to unwelcome consequences if a dispute subsequently arises. Additionally, it illustrates the risk of referring to a law and  jurisdiction clause in a previous contract; and consequential problems in recovering consigned goods.


This briefing provides details and commentary on the case's background and the Court's decision, as well as a series of practical tips to avoid disputes over governing law and jurisdiction.
