Ince confirmed as platinum sponsors of LISW21
We are pleased to announce that we will be part of the London International Shipping Week 2021 (LISW21) as a Platinum Sponsor.
With a heritage reaching back 150 years, Ince is a dynamic international legal and professional services firm, with offices in nine countries across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. With over 500 people, including over 100 partners worldwide, Ince provides legal advice, strategic guidance and business solutions to clients ranging from sector-leading businesses operating across numerous industries to ultra-high net worth individuals.
Julian Clark, our Global Senior Partner at Ince, welcomed the announcement, delighted that Ince would once again be supporting this important global maritime event.
Commenting on our support for the event, Julian Clark said:
“Over the years LISW has grown to become the largest global week for the maritime industry, with LISW21 promising to be even bigger and better than before. As a leader in maritime law, Ince is once again looking forward to showing its commitment to the shipping industry and connecting with both current and prospective clients alike.”
LISW21, which will be held in the week of September 13-17, 2021, has already received the support of over 100 international shipping trade associations together with the UK Government, Royal Navy and the UK domestic and international shipping and maritime sectors.
It promises to be an occasion of global proportions, with the number of events expected to exceed the 220 held during LISW19, meaning visitor numbers are expected to be higher than the 20,000 who attended last year.
For the first time, LISW will be both face-to-face and virtual and run industry events throughout the five days of the week as opposed to keeping the Thursday free just for the headline LISW Conference and Gala Dinner. This will give Supporting Organisations and Sponsors more freedom of choice when it comes to planning their events.
Further information about LISW21 can be found on the dedicated event website: www.londoninternationalshippingweek.com.

Mur Shipping BV v. RTI Ltd  EWCA Civ 1406 A majority of the Court of Appeal has held that the Owner under a contract of affreightment (COA) should have accepted payment of freight in Euros, rather than the US dollars provided for in the COA. Its refusal to do so meant that the Owner could not rely on the force majeure clause in the COA, in circumstances where US sanctions might have restricted US dollar transfers from or on behalf of the Charterer.

Ceto Shipping Corporation v. Savory Inc (Victor 1)  EWHC 2636 (Comm) The Court in this case had to construe a purchase option clause in a bareboat charter.
