|THE CENTRE WELCOMES MEMBERS AND OTHER COMMERCIAL PROFESSIONALS TO THE 10th WEBINAR IN ITS 2021 GLOBAL WEBINAR SERIES |
Negotiating contracts: “subject to” conditions and battles of the forms
Construing what the parties to a contract have agreed is at the heart of what dry shipping lawyers do. But sometimes the question is more fundamental: Has the contract come into effect? If there are two competing sets of terms, which ones apply?
Whilst negotiations to fix a vessel or cargo will likely be contained in emails or other electronic exchanges, lawyers will be better placed to answer these types of question if they understand the process of how brokers and traders go about negotiating such contracts.
Specific issues to be discussed will include:
The practical realities of negotiating and fixing a contract for a vessel or cargo from the perspective of a broker/trader.
The Leonidas  and the effect of conditions precedent and subsequent in charterparty negotiations through the use of “subject to” wording.
TRW Ltd. v Panasonic Industry Europe GmbH  and issues arising in ‘battle of the forms’ scenarios.
The Hon. Mr Justice Foxton – Judge of the Commercial Court
