Hammarström Puhakka Partners arranged a shipping law seminar on ship arrest and use of injunctions in shipping and transport related matters. Invited were representatives from different areas of the shipping, insurance and transport industry. More than 30 guests participated in the event that was hosted at Ravintola Sipuli on Katajanokka.
Victor Fenwick from Ince & Co held an introduction to ship arrest under English law, followed by an introduction to ship arrest in Finland by Herman Ljungberg, partner. We were very pleased that the former district bailiff, Antero Seppä of the Kymenlaakso execution office held an interesting lecture about ship arrests from the bailiff’s view and Johan Lång, Claims Manager, Oy Gard (Baltic) Ab from the insurer’s view. Henrik Gahmberg, partner lectured about the use of injunctions in shipping and transport related matters in Finland, and finally Victor Fenwick ended the program with injunctions from an English law point of view.
