HOW STATE LAW CAN BENEFIT BUSINESS LAW

BACKGROUND

It is traditionally thought that most commercial law practitioners view state regulation and treaties interfering with freedom of contract and therefore profitability.  From a different perspective, State Law should be seen as both adding security and efficiency to forming business relationships.   Indeed uniform commercial codes and arbitration acts are essentially guarantees that certain agreements are more likely to be enforced, while allowing flexibility.  This perspective is particularly applicable to international business transactions, and can be borne out through examination of various types of commerce.
