Goldfinger: The Business of Pricing

Just as Auric Goldfinger loves “the divine heaviness” of gold, so too do our clients need to make money to stay in business.  Lawyers must not only review agreements for transportation companies with an eye toward risk, but also toward their client’s bottom line. Transportation companies and their counsel must ensure that contract terms for payment and performance are clear. If discounts are supplied, then care should be taken to ensure sufficient volume and time to recoup any capital expenditures from the carrier’s perspective. Speakers will explore the relationship between scheduled rates, tariff rates, and spot rates in different modes of transportation, the interplay between term and volume provisions, and how to harmonize various agreements between parties using precedence provisions should agreements contain multiple pricing addenda and appendices.

Moderator: Jeremy R. Handschuh, Managing Attorney, Mitchell-Handschuh Law Group, Atlanta, GA
Greg E. Summy, Deputy General Counsel, Norfolk Southern Corporation, Norfolk, VA
Jeffrey E. Cox, Partner, Law Office of Seaton & Husk, L.P., Vienna, VA
