A commercial contract defines the conditions under which the contracting parties carry out their business activities. However, the interpretation and effect of these concepts can vary considerably depending on the legislation of the country governing them. An existing legal clause is intended to express the parties` decision as to what the law should be. An employment contract is governed by the law of the country in which, or if not, from which the worker usually performs his work in performance of the contract. (d) Where it follows from all the circumstances on a case-by-case basis that the treaty is clearly more closely linked to a country other than that in paragraphs (b) or (c), the law of that other country applies. 3 This means that the provision of the law applicable to a contract is well founded, since the parties have no choice of explicit or tacit right (always primarily above any objective link of the contract with an internal legal order, unless the agreement of choice between the parties is not valid), the provision of the law applicable to a contract is based on a type of contract (e) The law applicable to a contract under this principle applies in particular to: For a number of reasons, a clause of these conditions does not guarantee that non-contractual rights between the parties are still governed by English law. For example, when drafting the regulatory clause, the question is whether it should be limited to the agreement itself or whether it should be renewed to cover other non-contractual obligations related to the contract7. There is currently no clear authority as to the effectiveness of such a clause under English law in determining the law governing the non-contractual obligations of the parties. In the light of Rome II, this position has changed. (a) A contract is governed by the law chosen by the parties. The choice must be clearly or clearly demonstrated by the terms of the contract or the circumstances of the case.
After their election, the parties can choose the right applicable to all or part of the contract. The parties may agree at any time to submit the contract to a contract other than the one that previously settled it. An example of a clause that wishes to do so is: 2 The rule of subsection b is based on the idea that it is not the party that pays, but the party that works in kind – often in a professional context – that provides characteristic benefits within a contractual relationship. It is this performance that determines the type of contract you face. This relatively simple and simple approach provides legal certainty and ensures a uniform approach to determining the law applicable to a contractual relationship, regardless of the jurisdiction or arbitral tribunal to which the matter is to be decided. Ideally, professional advice should be obtained on the form and content of existing legislation and jurisdiction clauses for a given contract. However, if this is not feasible, the principles outlined above can help to avoid some of the problems encountered. 1 The closest link test of subsection a is that of the famous German law professor and Prussian law minister, Friedrich Carl von Savigny.
In Volume 8 of his main act ,“System of current Roman law“, published in the 19th century, Savigny argued that it is up to legal disputes to determine the „seat“ of a legal relationship, that is, the legal system with which this legal relationship has the closest territorial connection. Today, the next connection test has a functional rather than purely territorial meaning. This is reflected in Article 4.B of the EU`s Rome I Regulation, p. 1051, paragraph 2, the Arbitration Act and Article 187, paragraph 1, of the Swiss Arbitration Law of the Swiss Federal Law on Private International Law. b) In the absence of a choice of rights of the parties, a contract is governed by the right to which the contract is most closely bound („priority review“; „closest bond“; „closest ties“).
