The Director of Singapore-based specialist international shipping and commodity law firm Helmsman LLC is holding a ‘Masterclass’ on ship sale and purchase agreement organised by training provider M.I.C.E Global Pte Ltd.
“Sale and purchase law is a highly specialised branch of maritime law. Problems can arise out of the blue, very often in a tight window of a few days before the ship is due to be delivered and paid for,” said Maureen Poh.
“It is vital to get to grips with the problem immediately in order to deal with it effectively.”
Poh added that knowledge from the masterclass can be applied to transactions within the bunker tanker segment.
She notes that the Norwegian Saleform has long been the standard industry contract for the sale and purchase of second-hand ships.
The document has been used all over the world on a daily basis; however, similar to all basic blueprints, it has changed and evolved over the years to accommodate new problems and changing commercial practices.
A new ship sale agreement under preparation by BIMCO is expected to cover several additional issues, reflecting changing problems and needs.
“This masterclass will give you a clear and concise picture of the problems which have occupied the shipping industry in recent years – and some of the problems which have now emerged in the age of COVID-19, sanctions and other global developments. The masterclass will also discuss solutions to these problems,” states Poh.
