Marine casualty management has long been a topic of interest to stakeholders in the Middle East region, which is why EMAC recently provided a platform for a discussion focusing on casualties in UAE waters led by Mehtab Kassam, Senior Associate at Clyde & Co, at its latest breakfast event.
In her presentation, Ms. Kassam spoke about some of the complexities relating to maritime casualties, and what this means in terms of Sharia law as well as the criminal aspects of casualties.
“EMAC has continued to work towards bringing topics of vital importance to the UAE maritime community. We believe that prevention is better than cure, and through a knowledge series hope to provide an understanding about issues in maritime, and also a way to address claims and disputes through the right mechanisms,” said. Majid Obaid bin Bashir, chairman and secretary general, EMAC.
The team at EMAC are preparing for a very active November by participating at ADIPEC, in Abu Dhabi. Together with the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry they will present for a Breakfast with EMAC seminar on November 12th that will look at oil and gas disputes, past, present and future, with industry experts from ADNOC, Shearman & Sterling and Secretariat International.
