Commodities Experts Evaluate Breach of Contract

    Commodities Expert WitnessThis customs case involves a breach of contract involving commodities. The defendant is a national distributor of frozen fish, while the plaintiff is their supplier; they have a contract in place that ensured prices at market value. The plaintiff is now pursuing a case against the defendant for missing payments. The defendant, however, contends that they were overcharged, that they were not charged the appropriate amount based on reports from third-party sources, and that the plaintiff charged the frozen fish at “local market value” rather than a national market value.

    Expert Witness Response E-007848

    Oftentimes contracts are not written tightly enough and the wording surrounding issues such as how a market price should be calculated leaves room for this type of situation. I am very experienced in analyzing markets and market data and would be interested in taking a look at this case. I also have prior experience in commercial litigation suits involving seafood, so I am familiar with some of the issues involved.
