Navigating The Latest Changes To The Shipping And Commodities Landscape – An LSLC-YMP event

Kevin Cooper from Navig8 as well as Benjamin Joseph and Gemma Morgan from Quadrant Chambers shall focus the discussion on recent hot topics and provide a legal outlook for 2024 focusing in particular on:
• The Supreme Court’s clarification on the interpretation of Force Majeure clauses in the wake of the decision in RTI Ltd. v MUR Shipping BV [2024] UKSC 18; and
• The ongoing disruptive geopolitical environment and other industry changes

HFW partner Michael Buisset and HFW associate Caroline West, will then take the audience through a lively mock arbitration arguing both cargo interests’ and owners’ cases on liability following an attack by Houthi rebels in the Red Sea and considering the current issues there.
