Cross-border and international litigation is always a ‘minefield’ of issues, and forum shopping is a necessary exercise when dealing with the enforcement of maritime credits and liens. Although most maritime nations have ratified unification treaties such as The New York Convention and The Arrest Convention, there are still considerable gaps in domestic laws and procedures that often surprise even experienced litigants when trying to enforce their credits and rights in foreign courts, or even when attempting to enforce foreign arbitral awards and court decisions/orders. This session will feature a panel of experienced litigators, arbitrators and judges providing straightforward answers to questions from the moderator and audience on the key issues related to this subject, from the drafting and execution of a contract to the registration of liens/enforcement procedures, including Exequatur requirements and challenges.

The current difficult times faced by the shipping and offshore sector make it more important than ever to choose the proper insurance cover to minimise uninsured/underinsured exposure, while always considering the cost-effectiveness of the cover selected. This panel will address topical aspects of marine insurance, including P&I, Hull & Machinery, Loss of Hire, FD&D, Cargo, Offshore and Port/Terminal cover, with focus on the more intricate and complex questions owners face when buying insurance to cover their vessels, rigs and port operations worldwide. The so-called ‘included and excluded cover’ within the different types of insurance and also what the insured ‘must do and must not do’ to keep their cover in place, such as the duty to inform relevant facts which could affect the risk factors, the duty to mitigate the losses, among other technical requirements to be observed. The session will also consider the best practices in claims handling and the insurer’s and insured’s expectations of each other.

The handling of major casualties at sea is a complex exercise – and is even more challenging in the offshore industry because of the number of interests involved and potential for massive losses. A rapid, coordinated and efficient response is paramount. And these steps must be taken in the context of the potential liabilities and exposure of the various interests. This session will examine the challenges and pitfalls faced by the offshore industry when managing large casualties at sea from two perspectives: • The initial investigation and steps that must be taken to conserve the environment, minimise loss and injury, and secure key evidence, including the role of owners, surveyors, lawyers, claims handlers, and local authorities in that process. • The assessment of the liability of the various interests in view of their contractual relationships, which invariably will involve the construction and enforceability of knock for knock and other clauses designed to shift or limit liability.

There has been a trend worldwide in high profile investments associated with new port projects. These projects are capital intensive and require a sound analysis of the regulations and the main challenges to obtain governmental licences required to initiate operations. A panel composed by ports sector lawyers and executives will compare the different licensing and authorisation regimes in Latin America, US, Europe, the Far East and Africa and comment on how it is possible to improve the legal environment to optimise ‘green field’ port projects in countries where there is a need to improve port infrastructure.
