A practical In-house seminar delivering best practice, techniques and tips for documents used in the international sale of goods carried by sea.
This In-house programme focuses on the documents used in the international sale of goods carried by sea. These documents are of interest not only to shippers and carriers but also to sellers, buyers, bankers and insurers. The expert trainers will focus on the problem areas of the different types of contracts under the spotlight – the areas which normally lead to disputes and claims if they are overlooked or misunderstood.
The programme also covers some important related areas including the regulatory background and the role of the many international conventions that govern the Law of the Sea; competition law aspects; and cargo claims which will be the focus of an interactive workshop session.
