International Procurement Vedder Service
Vedder Price assists companies dealing with the myriad of complex business issues and legal challenges impacting international commercial and government contracting transactions.
For international government contracting activities, Vedder Price’s government contracting team represents companies as they navigate a broad spectrum of challenges. These challenges begin with marketing and continue through contract formation and performance issues, and often include managing disputes through negotiation and international arbitration. Companies seeking to operate internationally also face a wide array of legal challenges in their international government contracting sales, including navigating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), foreign representative/consultant and foreign procurement law guidance, export control regulations, “buy national” protections, and assistance with setting up in-country business operations, among others. Our international experience extends to representing clients in disputes that arise from their international transactions. We work to manage and resolve these disputes, starting with assisting clients in drafting tailored performance specifications and disputes provisions. We have experience before a diverse assortment of international arbitration forums, including the ICC International Court of Arbitration, the Cairo Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration, the London Court of International Arbitration, and the American Arbitration Association.
