P&I round table

As ship owners start preparing for the P&I renewal on 20th February, we consider the issues facing the International Group of P&I Clubs. As well as three partners from our P&I team - Richard Colla, Chris Le Hur and Patrick Kirkman - we invited Christopher Brown, Underwriting Director at Thomas Miller, Managers of the UK P&I Club, to join the debate.

Ebola port quarantine: Where will the risks lie?

We look at the potential impacts of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa on world shipping and insurance cover.

Can an assured ever lie?

In addition, we hear from Jim Cashman, Partner at Holman Fenwick Willan LLP, about what lessons can be learned from the recent Merwestone case. We also meet a partner from our marine team - Richard Colla and provide a round up on mergers and acquisitions in the marine sector. Finally, we cover our fundraising efforts for the very worthwhile OSCAR campaign, which has raised nearly £1 million to help fund Great Ormond Street Hospital's pioneering research into childhood illnesses.
