In trade transactions, the interests and risks to be covered vary significantly depending on the legal status of the parties, such as sellers, buyers, and distributors, as well as the type and nature of the relevant products. It is important to be aware of the flow of transactions and the roles of each party, including credit matters and measures for dealing with disputes in the event of default, and to consider and prepare for these matters, even in what appear to be simple sales contracts. It is also necessary to consider the circumstances in the countries that are party to the transaction, such as distributor protection legislation.
