Legal Briefing: Cargo claims under Chinese law

The latest publication from the UK Club Legal Briefing team provides an overview of the current situation and recommendations to note if Members face claims by shippers or consignees in China.
This briefing is one of a continuing series which aims to share the legal expertise within the Club with our Members.
