London International Shipping Week 2021 - Containership Special Legal Breakfast Forum

Time: 8am


Nigel Cooper QC, James M Turner QC and Nichola Warrender QC from Quadrant, were delighted to be joined by Paul Dean, Global Head of Shipping at HFW. The panel set the scene by highlighting some of the current hot topics facing the containership industry. To look at the legal issues in practice, they discuss the scenario of a cyber-attack on a containership resulting in the blocking of a terminal. They consider the issues raised by such an incident including congestion and delay, cybersecurity and cyber risk, the different types of contracts affected, (un)safe port claims and the insurance.
