The Zug Commodity Association (ZCA) is pleased to inform you about the interactive case study hosted by Zurich Shipping Network, presented and sponsored by Holman Fenwick Willan LLP. This event starts at 6.30pm at Glockenhof (Sihlstrasse 31, 8001 Zurich).

Sarah Hunt and Jeremy Davies – both partners at HFW Geneva, will explain how, in a recent case, the Supreme Court held that there is no special rule relating to debts represented by letters of credit. This gives hope to debtors trying to enforce Awards in difficult jurisdictions.

During their interactive presentation, we will learn about:

  • The new rule that overturns the Power Curber case;
  • Recovering demurrage claims under sale contracts against entities claiming state immunity;
  • The new rule on arresting a Letter of Credit under English law clarified by the Supreme Court.

As usual, this is an excellent opportunity to meet and network with other shipping professionals based in German-speaking Switzerland. Everyone with an interest in shipping is welcome. As space for this event is limited, places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Please confirm your attendance directly to: zurich@shippingnetwork.co.uk

Attendance is free of charge

We hope this event is of interest to you.
