The UK P&I Club’s Legal Briefings are well researched articles on issues which are topical, and usually of concern to our Members. In our Legal Briefings, we aim to explain complex issues and subjects in an unbiased and clear manner to Members, highlighting important points and adding the Club’s recommendations for Members whenever appropriate.  Our Legal Briefings are written by experts within Thomas Miller, occasionally in collaboration with our network of correspondents and legal advisers.

If Members have any questions on any of the issues covered in our Legal Briefings, please contact the Legal Team via Jacqueline Tan (jacqueline.tan@thomasmiller.com) or Ioana Gonciari (ioana.gonciari@thomasmiller.com), or your usual contact at the Club, and we will be pleased to assist you with your questions. The Legal Team also welcomes suggestions from Members on P&I related topics and issues for our future Legal Briefings.
