With a focus on shipping, ports and logistics, the team were joined by guest speakers Bob Sanguinetti, chief executive of the UK Chamber of Shipping; Richard Ballantyne, chief executive of the British Ports Association; and Richard Burnett, chief executive of the Road Haulage Association .

Beth Bradley, partner in Hill Dickinson’s London Shipping team, gave a presentation in which she outlined the pitfalls for companies seeking to invoke force majeure when confronted with Brexit delays and port congestion disrupting British container trade.

The presentation was subsequently reported in Lloyd’s List on 10 December 2020 and included in the journal’s January round up of the most relevant stories of the previous month.
