In our next Ongoing Learning Webinar we will discuss commodities arbitration: a dispute resolution mechanism offered by some of the most famous trade organisations in the world.
Despite the vast scope of this area of dispute resolution, this incredibly interesting topic has been out of the limelight. Did you know, for example, that approximately 80-85% of the global trade in oils, seeds, fats and grain is traded under, respectively FOSFA and GAFTA contracts? The resolution of disputes under such contracts is administered by such organisations.
Together with our panel of experts, we will shed more light on the activity and the nature of arbitration services offered by commodities trade organisations. We will focus on, in particular, the history of commodities arbitration (it's essential modern relevance), interesting procedural aspects related to proceedings and awards, as well as qualifications necessary to arbitrate a commodity dispute
