Singapore-based specialist international shipping and commodity law firm Helmsman LLC is organising a Masterclass on commodity trading contracts at the SMU Law Academy in March 2021.
The Masterclass is designed for experienced commodity trading personnel (legal, credit, risk, compliance, traders and operations) interested in developing a deeper understanding and higher level of expertise in commodity trading contracts.
Participants should have at least an intermediate level (3 years and up) of experience in commodity trading.
“Commodity trading law is fast emerging as a specialist practice. This area of law is particularly important to Singapore, being a major international commodity trading hub,” a Helmsman spokeswoman told Manifold Times.
“The commodity trading contract is a vital document for commodity traders. Often, it determines who makes and who loses money when things go wrong. It is a complex document and its implications are often overlooked.”
The six-hour course will be taught by class-leading commodities trading specialist lawyers – Ian Teo (Managing Director, Helmsman LLC) and Chen Zhida (Associate Director, Helmsman LLC) – who will share real life case studies and experience to illustrate the practical application of commodities trading law.
The one-day course is seminar-based and revolve around hypothetical problems based on real life cases discussed in an interactive setting.
The issues which will be discussed in-depth include:
