Continuing awareness on the benefits of arbitration and mediation for maritime related disputes, the Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre (EMAC) hosted its eighth Breakfast with EMAC on the subject of Charter Party disputes on 20 November at its offices in DIFC.
Guest speaker, Alessandro Tricoli, Partner and Head of Shipping Department (non-contentious) from Fichte & Co, focused on charter party contracts and the most common areas that need to be addressed at the inception of a charter agreement. Drawing on his experience in the region’s maritime legal sector, Mr. Tricoli provided attendees with examples and information tailored to the region.
“Charter party contracts are at the heart of commercial shipping operations, and charter party disputes are an accepted risk for many of those operating in the sector in the region and around the world,” said Mr. Majid Obaid bin Bashir, Acting Chairman and Secretary General, EMAC. “At EMAC, we are committed to facilitating conversations around issues, such as these, which have the potential to affect the day-to-day operations of the region’s maritime sector, ensuring its continued growth and prosperity.”
Each of the EMAC breakfast sessions hosted in Dubai is accredited independently for one credit by the Dubai Government Legal Affairs Department’s Continuing Legal Professional Development.
