Even in ancient times, merchants endeavoured to find common ground and reach agreements about the terms and conditions of the sale and delivery of goods. Modern legal instruments and international customary practices set a new level of communication between the buyer and the seller, the supplier and the distributor. At the present time, owing to freedom of contract, there are hundreds of forms of business cooperation. Many of these forms are constantly evolving and undergoing major changes, so we must be aware of everything that our client undertakes, inclusive of what forms of cooperation he/she chooses.
