4 Pump Court in association with the London Shipping Law Centre (LSLC) and HFW will be hosting a panel session on Tuesday 8 December 2020, 12:00pm – 13:30pm GMT, discussing the implications for the maritime industry of the recent UK Supreme Court Judgment in Halliburton v Chubb.
The UK Supreme Court has confirmed and clarified the obligation on arbitrators to make disclosures in overlapping multiple appointment situations to avoid doubts as to their impartiality, while highlighting and distinguishing the unique characteristics of LMAA and other sector-focussed arbitration.
Nick Vineall QC and Andrew Stevens will be joined by HFW’s Jonathan Webb and Cecilie Rezutka and retired partner George Eddings, now an arbitrator and dispute resolution consultant at GMT Eddings Maritime & Offshore.
We are delighted that Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales will chair the debate.
