Risk & Reward: Protecting Your Supply Chain, Your Interests and Your Investment

The growth of the Ocean Industry, like any other industry, is highly dependent on a vibrant, functional and reliable supply chain. With so much at stake, both suppliers and customers are increasingly taking steps to legally protect their interests and investments.

This webinar will discuss some of the important commercial and legal risks associated with supply arrangements and explore best practices to protect all parties involved with these agreements.

We’ll review:

• Payment terms
• Nature of relationship
• Liability, risk and indemnity
• Environmental liabilities
• Dispute settlement arrangements
• Intellectual property
• Insurance requirements
• Scope of work and change order mechanisms.
• Term and termination
• Force majeure


Those who participate in a supply chain, whether supplier, customer or both.
