WEBINAR | Does the Post Halliburton landscape provide “closure on disclosure” for appointments in London Maritime arbitration?
HFW in association with the London Shipping Law Centre (LSLC) and 4 Pump Court would like to invite you to a webinar 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.
In its landmark decision handed down on Friday 27 November 2020, 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.
This webinar will consist of a panel discussion by leading experts who were all involved in representing the London Maritime Arbitrators Association in respect of its intervention in the proceedings.
HFW’s Jonathan Webb (Partner) and Cecilie Rezutka (Associate) will be joined by retired partner George Eddings, now an arbitrator and dispute resolution consultant at GMT Eddings Maritime & Offshore, and 4 Pump Court barristers Nick Vineall QC and Andrew Stevens.
We are delighted that Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales and LSLC President, will chair the debate.
The panel would welcome questions in advance which you can send to Cecilie Rezutka, or ask during the webinar using Zoom’s Q&A.
