Captured in Time | Case by Case (Ep. 70)
Case by Case – episode 70: Captured in Time
We are back this week with an interesting shipping case. Just as we become podcaster septuagenarians.
I could open this with a profound question like, “what is the meaning of time?”
But this is a more concrete question about whether breach of a vessel hull cleaning clause was intended to create a debt claim for hire post-charter or damages claim.
The Place to Rule B | Case by Case (Ep. 68)
Case by Case – episode 68: The Place to Rule B.
“This is in our sweet spot…” so we start on video. And it is. Our original USP as a law firm was to handle US and UK legal matters seamlessly. We’ve grown, combined and added EU legal work into the mix too, and Australian law. This case explores the limits of the USA Rule B attachment in the context of maritime indemnity claims and how drafting of the underlying UK dispute can influence the US court’s approach to the attachment. Indemnity claims in the maritime space come in different shapes and sizes. They could be under an LOI for delivery without presentation of bills. Edward and Luke first started working together on such a case at different firms, where I handled the UK indemnity claim and Ed attached a litigated US claim under Rule B. That’s where our story all started.
