    In this episode of Break It Down, ZFZ New York-based associate Jonas Patzwall gives us the full rundown on US Sanctions.

    Shanghai Shipyards – Fight for your right for payment on demand | Case by Case (Ep. 11)

    “On demand” or “See to it” – those are the two main types of guarantee. But what do those terms actually mean? Is it always clear if a guarantee is one, rather than the other, type? And, if not, what are the tell tale signs of each of these categories of guarantee?

    All of this was discussed in the recent Shanghai Shipyard’s case – Judgment handed down on 23 July 2021.

    Luke and Calum discuss the case in detail in this podcast.

  • Galtrade v BP – When can a cargo buyer reject delivery? | Case by Case (Ep. 10)

    Galtrade v BP – When can a cargo buyer reject delivery? | Case by Case (Ep. 10)

    When faced with a breach of contract an innocent party will often want to know if they have a right to terminate and walk away from the agreement, or whether they must continue with the contract and limit themselves to a recovery in damages.

    This is a tightrope for the parties and their lawyers. Does a breach of that specific term give a right to terminate? Alternatively, is this breach sufficiently significant to give that party a right to terminate?

    The Galtrade decision looks at both questions, and Luke and Calum consider it in today’s podcast.
