The workshop will cover common issues arising under physical commodity contracts and the accompanying storage arrangements. We will be discussing the following topics:

  • Risk, title and delivery – what are they and how do they work when goods are in storage?
  • Force Majeure – what is it and what are the consequences?
  • Termination Rights – what events might trigger contract termination when goods are in storage?
  • Insolvency – what happens to your goods if your counterparty or storage operator goes insolvent?
  • Storage arrangements – typical structures and terms to obtain from a storage operator

Speakers will include HFW Partners, Sarah Taylor and Katie Pritchard and Associates Adam Richardson and Suzanne Meiklejohn.
