HFW Seminar: Unsafe Ports

In the 55 years since HFW acted for successful Owners in the defining Court of Appeal case "EASTERN CITY", we have been advising clients on the complex area of unsafe port.


7 November 2013


Piraeus, Greece


This seminar demonstrated that only by appreciating and effectively addressing the various dry and wet aspects - the law and the often challenging evidential issues - can clients expect a successful result.

The seminar, introduced by HFW Partner Dimitri Vassos, featured presentations from HFW Partners Martin Dalby and Jean Koh, along with Senior Associate Philip Carney. The presentations looked at the legal framework, key cases, implications for owners, charterers and ports in the context of typical scenarios, evidence gathering and examples of cases we have handled.

We are working with clients across our international network to help them minimise the impact of COVID-19 on their business and to prepare for what's next. To find out more, visit our dedicated Covid-19 hub.
