GAFTA KYGC Generic 650x150 23062021

This online seminar is split across two-days and is an ideal opportunity for trade professionals who want a practical overview of Gafta contracts and how to apply legal and commercial principles to everyday scenarios in the trade. It will be run by Gafta's General Counsel, Jonathan Waters. Jonathan is a barrister who has over 30 years' experience in advising on commercial contracts and disputes.

The seminar will include an overview of English contract law (on which all Gafta contracts are based), an analysis of the key Gafta contract terms as well as an in-depth consideration of a number of important topics such as counterparty risk, default and damages, commercial considerations, dispute resolution (including Gafta arbitration) and important 'do's and don't's' when contracting.

*The language of this seminar will be English*
