It’s a good idea to see your dentist every year for a check up – it will save you some money (and pain) in the long run. The same applies to way you run your business, in particular the way you get your standard terms to apply, and the quality of the contracts you enter into.
Pior to starting Sea Green Consulting, Ted worked with a lot of companies in order to improve (1) their standard contracts and (2) the way they entered into contracts. Highlights included:
Assisting an oil major to draft their own complete suite of trading terms covering every single Incoterm. See https://www.equinor.com/en/what-we-do/conditions-of-sales.html
Drafting a Repo for a Swiss based trader for their metal trading operations.
Redrafting GTCs for a major bunker trader.
Assisting an international mining company, which employs over 100,000 people, to draft their standard sale contracts for ferro-nickel.
Assisting an Australian energy company to draft their own LNG time charter.
Numerous reviews of shelltime, NYPE and Gencon charters for various charterers and owners.
Assisting one of the World’s largest container lines with various issues relating to their website and the way that cargo is booked.
Assisting one of the IG P&I Clubs with amendents to their rules and procedures for renewals.
