The fourth edition of The Shipping Law Review aims to continue to provide those involved in handling shipping disputes in multiple jurisdictions with an overview of the key issues relevant to each jurisdiction. As with previous editions, we begin with cross-jurisdictional chapters looking at the latest developments in important areas for the shipping industry: competition and regulatory law, sanctions, ocean logistics, piracy, shipbuilding, ports and terminals and environmental issues.

George Eddings, HFW

George Eddings advises on all aspects of maritime and offshore energy law including charterparties, bills of lading and construction contracts. In the past year he has been advising clients on claims arising out of the major insolvency of South Korean container line Hanjin and has been a regular commentator on this in the trade press. George is also part of HFW’s Emergency Response Team with particular experience in the contractual aspects of General Average and issues arising from groundings, collisions, salvage and the carriage of dangerous goods by sea. He has headed teams arbitrating many issues arising from ship and drilling rig construction disputes and has drafted multimodal bills of lading with some of the world’s leading container companies. George has strong industry connections, in particular in South Korea, Japan, Scandinavia and Latin America. He has regularly been listed as a leading shipping lawyer in Chambers and The Legal 500, with one source citing his ‘excellent reputation’ (The Legal 500 2016).

Andrew Chamberlain, HFW

Andrew Chamberlain is a former Royal Navy officer and specialises in ‘wet’ shipping cases, including salvage (acting for salvors, as well owners and their underwriters), collisions, fire and explosion, total loss and wreck removal. He also advises on both civil and criminal pollution liabilities, marine insurance coverage disputes and the full range of other shipping-related commercial and contractual disputes. Andrew served at sea with the Royal Navy and also had a stint with the Hong Kong Squadron before qualifying as a lawyer. As a partner at HFW he has been heavily involved in many of the largest casualties of recent years, including ‘MSC Napoli’ (2007), ‘MSC Chitra’ (2010), ‘Costa Cocordia’ (2012), ‘Norman Atlantic’ (2014), ‘Eastern Amber’ and ‘Maersk Seoul’ (2015). Andrew lectures regularly on salvage, wreck removal and casualty response and is an acknowledged expert in the field. He is consistently recommended in Chambers and The Legal 500 for his work on shipping matters, with one source commenting: ‘What he doesn’t know about shipping isn’t worth knowing’ (Chambers 2016).

Rebecca Warder, HFW

Rebecca Warder is responsible for knowledge management for the HFW shipping group. She produces a variety of client publications, provides training both to clients and to lawyers within the firm and has also advised clients on their own knowledge management systems. Ms Warder has particular expertise in relation to environmental regulation and co-edits the firm’s ‘Green Shipping Bulletin’. Before moving into her professional support lawyer role, she practised as a senior shipping litigator, advising on a wide variety of multi-jurisdictional and high-value shipping disputes. Her cases primarily involved charterparty, bill of lading and shipbuilding and rig-building disputes, although she also advised on marine insurance litigation and on the drafting of dispute resolution clauses. Ms Warder worked on international arbitrations including LCIA, LCIA-DIFC and ICC cases as well as LMAA arbitrations, and has handled both mediations and expert determination.
