What are the risks for investors in the Blue Economy as it continues to grow and attract financing?

Under the guidance of session chairs Liv Monica Stubholt (Partner, Selmer) and Jonathan Webb (Partner, Holman Fenwick Willan), this highly experienced legal and insurance group will tackle key questions in the emerging world of Blue Economy:
• What are the key risks, concerns and constraints associated with investing in the expanding ocean economy?
• What is the role of the ocean/maritime insurance and legal communities in relation to these ocean development and sustainability risks and issues?
• How can the ocean/maritime insurance and legal community best coordinate its efforts globally with the ocean business community and the ocean investment and innovation communities?
