Gafta and FOSFA Arbitration

Our team has extensive experience in dispute resolution under GAFTA and FOSFA contracts, and cases led by our team are regularly mentioned by The Legal500 and other legal rankings. We take specialised training (including Gafta Distance Learning Programme), have deep understanding of the main pro formas and commercial reality behind contracts.

We advise on contentious issues which arise between traders and their counterparties, owners, terminals, freightforwarders, surveyors and port authorities. We also represent clients in GAFTA arbitrations, in particular, under Rules No 125 and 126, and also under the FOSFA Arbitration Rules.
