On November 8, 2016, Interlegal lawyer Ekaterina Gadetskaya held the traditional autumn workshop for students of the National University “Odessa Law Academy” regarding “Five mistakes in conclusion of international contracts”.

The lecture highlighted provisions of contracts which appear to be inessential, but may be crucial in the event the dispute arises. Carelessness in drafting the contracts often results in increase of the cost of defense of interests by engaged lawyers or even in impossibility of such defense.

Special attention was drawn to such aspects as necessity in inspection of the counteragents, attention to the wording of certain clauses (force majeure, arbitration clauses), choice of applicable substantive law of the contract. Presentation was based on practical examples from Interlegal’s 20-year experience.

Theoretical part of presentation was supported by case study, introduced the audience to the recent cases of Interlegal practice, which awoke a keen interest among the students.

The most active students were awarded the Interlegal guidebook “What impedes the good charterer?” and were invited to the Open Day at Interlegal.
