Thomas Miller has again hosted its annual Trends in Maritime Claims event in conjunction with the Young Maritime Professionals (YMP).

Now in its third year, the event was very well attended. Over 70 YMP members from across the London market, including solicitors, barristers, brokers, experts and other P&I insurers, listened to presentations given by P&I, Defence, ITIC and TT Club. 

Amanda Hastings spoke on soybean claims in China and examined possible grounds for the increased claims as well as providing loss prevention and claims handling tips.

Christopher Karageorgis and Lyall Hickson focused on getting the basics right in commencing arbitrations, reviewing some of the recent case law in this area.

Karolina Bieganska spoke on the recent decision in Jennings v TUI UK Limited [2018] EWHC 82 (Admlty) and its impact on the definition of "carriage" under the Athens Convention.

There were also very interesting talks by our colleagues Andrea Gentile (TT Club) on "Cargo Integrity and the CTU Code" and Tom Irving (ITIC) on PI Claims affecting Marine Surveyors.
