German Supreme Court Once Again Cites Paper by Franco Ferrari in Ruling on International Sales Law

Professor Ferrari, who is the director of the Law School’s Center for Transnational Litigation and Commercial Law, is an expert on international sales law. In its November 7, 2012, the German court relied on a paper by Ferrari asserting that INCOTERMS are not necessarily to be interpreted on the basis of the understanding attributed to them by the ICC, but may be subject to domestic interpretation where no express reference is made to ICC INCOTERMS.
