Sharing expertise

A significant proportion of the expertise in the Managers’ offices around the world consists of lawyers who can advise Members on general P&I related legal and contractual and issues.

The legal group participates in a virtual team, meeting regularly to discuss Members’ contracts under the leadership of our Legal Director, Chao Wu. The team’s aim is to provide for best quality service and advice to Members on contract review. 

This team also produces legal briefings on topical issues to share the legal expertise within the Club with our Members. Previous copies of legal briefings can be found here.
