The Club’s Piraeus office recently hosted a crisis management workshop for local members in cooperation with International law firm Ince & Co.
The interactive workshop challenged the attendees to managing a fictional collision between the MV “HAPLESS BULKER” and the MT “LUCKLESS TANKER” in the Mediterranean Sea, from first notification from the respective vessels through to the critical early decision making process, crisis management and claims handling. The scenario also included personal injury, pollution and salvage elements. The workshop was organised and run by Cedric Chatteleyn and Eleni Nomikou of Thomas Miller (Hellas) and Stuart Francis and Jamila Khan of Ince & Co.
This well attended event promoted thorough examination and discussion of the issues that arise following a collision and was considered a great success.
