A significant proportion of the expertise in the Managers’ offices around the world resides in our lawyers who advise Members on P&I related legal and contractual issues. The legal department is headed by Dr Chao Wu, assisted by Jacqueline Tan (Legal Services Manager and Meredith Yang (Legal Executive), supported by a virtual team of contract reviewers, the majority of whom are experienced shipping lawyers.

The Legal Department's main responsibilities consist of:

  • The drafting and review of the UK P&I Club’s Rules, legal documentations and legal aspects of the reinsurance contracts
  • The review of Members’ contracts in the context of the insurances that the Club provides 
  • The production of legal publications (legal briefings, QCRs, articles, updates, etc.) on topical legal issues to share the Club’s legal expertise with our Members, and to keep our Members updated on shipping related legal developments worldwide
