Chapter Summary

The growth in transnational litigation has been attributed to the steady increase in foreign trade and industry in the United States. This is the introductory chapter of this book, which aims to educate the lawyer in the handling of transnational litigation issues under U.S. law and procedure. The book also aims to contribute to the lawyer's understanding of international law and practice from a global perspective. The U.S. forum provides procedural advantages to any plaintiff over other jurisdictions. The doctrine of forum non conveniens presents significant obstacles to plaintiffs with only a minimal interest in litigating in the U.S. To properly handle transnational litigation issues, lawyers need to be aware of the ability of U.S. courts to act in this area. The first important task in handling an international litigation case is to organize the relevant material. In the typical situation, both domestic and foreign law material will be involved.

Keywords: forum non conveniens; transnational litigation; U.S. forum
