BIMCO's Nina Stuhrmann, Manager, Contracts & Clause, will be taking part in a joint seminar between 4 Pump Court and BIMCO to discuss the forthcoming re-draft of the BIMCO Infectious Diseases Clause and, more widely, issues arising under many charter parties about who bears time and money consequences of delays and disruption.

How can a fair risk allocation be achieved in the face of a constantly evolving Covid-19 situation and how do we make sure that clauses remain fit for purpose when the next unknown challenge arises? Sean O’Sullivan QC, James Leabeater QC and Anna Hoffmann from 4 Pump Court will be joined by BIMCO to discuss experiences of different relevant clauses and how these have responded to the current pandemic.

Tuesday 14th September, 11:00-12:30 BST (10:00-11:30 UTC/GMT)

Sean O’Sullivan QC, James Leabeater QC & Anna Hoffmann
