Addressing International Legal and Ethical Issues Simulation

Disagreements are very common in international trade. Whenever a company enters into a contract with an international entity, it must ensure that the contract is legally enforceable in order to protect the company's interest.

This paper deals with such international problems faced by a hypothetical company, CadMex Pharma based in Tampa Florida, which teams-up with another hypothetical company, Gentura based in a small developing country, Candore. A series of events takes place between CadMex Pharma, Gentura and the country of Candore, which has impact on the business operations of CadMex Pharma. The contract that these two companies get into is that CadMex will license their technology and provide expertise. In return, Gentura will give CadMex the global marketing rights to the anti-diabetic agent that Gentura has developed.

Analysis of selecting the proper forum and venue for dispute resolution

In return, of this know-how, Gentura has provided worldwide marketing rights to CadMex for the drugs that are developed using CadMex's technology. One of the payment clauses of the contract says, "Gentura will pay the licensor, CadMex Pharma, a running royalty equal to 7.5% of Net Sales of the Licensed Product sold by the licensee protected by patent rights." If Gentura subsidizes the production of VioBrax, the payment terms of the contract between Gentura and CadMex will be violated.

What remedies might be available for such breach?

In event of a contract breach, CadMex has the following options

Take Legal Action

Taking legal action can affect future relations with Gentura and Candore. At the same time, not taking any action and letting Gentura
