Preparation of a request for arbitration and analysis of the payment method for the arbitration fee in the context of the economic sanctions

Having studied the civil and sanctions legislation and concluded that the buyer’s reference to the sanctions restrictions was unfounded, we started preparing a request for arbitration to the GAFTA arbitration institution.
