Webinar – The Good Faith Debate: English Law and the International Tide

This webinar is produced in association with Linklaters and 36 Stone and we are delighted that Sir Bernard Eder has agreed to chair and moderate the debate: the subject is one which Sir Bernard has a special interest and was the subject of his keynote address “The Relevance of Good Faith in Shipping Disputes” which he gave at the 44th Annual MLAANZ Conference.

Amongst matters to be discussed (and debated) will be:

• Recent developments in English law, including Taqa Bratani Limited v Rockrose [2020] EWHC 58 (Comm)
• Changes overseas, including in Canada where two decisions are pending in the Supreme Court on the issue of good faith;
• Whether adoption of good faith as an incident of contractual performance is either necessary or desirable?

Panellists:Vasanti Selvaratnam QC - Joint Head of Chambers at 36 Stone
Simon Firth - Partner, Linklaters LLP
Philip Wood CBE QC (Hon.)
