A CRAFT beer tasting session concluded an informative two-hour ADVOC marine advisory session at the Melbourne premises of law firm Colin, Biggers and Paisley.
Certainly a beer was in order for those who attended as the presentations, while extremely interesting, dealt with weighty topics that required full concentration and attention.
Speakers included Colin Biggers & Paisley partner, Andrew Prober, who talked about freight forwarders and bills of lading.
Simon Cartwright, a partner with Hesketh Henry (New Zealand) examined regulatory changes in New Zealand.
Senior partner with Joseph Tan Jude Benny LLP (Singapore), Danny Chua, then talked about cross-border insolvency: judicial recognition, using some interesting examples relating to the collapse of Hanjin and how it played out in the courts of Singapore.
Then Richard Arrage, Special Counsel with Colin Biggers & Paisley, sought to explain the finer points of ‘Blockchain’ in relation to the shipping industry.
Colin Biggers & Paisley partner, Stuart Hetherington, gave a rundown of the reform the Marine Insurance Acts 1906 (UK) and Australia (1909).
Certainly quite a bit to take in and indeed a beer was warranted.
