With the globalization of the economy, American attorneys face increasing challenges in transactions and contract formation. When conducting business between entities in more than one country, whose law governs the transaction? If a dispute arises, where and how will it be solved? How is service of process completed outside of the United States? How is “discovery” of documents and other types of evidence accomplished? If judgment is entered in one country, will it be enforced in another? These are questions that many American attorneys face, regardless of whether they intended to practice “international law.” This paper discusses organizations and online resources which will assist the transnational lawyer in global transactions or litigation. The focus is on free resources available in English, although a few resources available in other languages are included as well
