International Trading Contracts: Description vs Quality what recourse does a Buyer have?

HFW will be hosting a seminar on trading disputes involving breach of contract in the context of off-specification cargoes.


11 Dec 2012




HFW Associate, Sarah Hunt will present on the following areas:

  • Can a buyer reject a cargo if it fails to meet quality specifications?
  • Can a buyer reject a cargo if it does not match its description?
  • What damages can be claimed by the buyer if the product is off-specification?
  • How does the Commercial Court interpret a P&L deal sheet supporting a trader's legal claim, net of hedging losses or gains involving strong market movement?
