Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre discusses session on maritime casualties in UAE waters
Marine casualty management has been a topic of interest to maritime stakeholders in the Middle East region, which is why EMAC has provided a discussion platform focusing on maritime casualties in UAE waters with Mehtab Kassam, Senior Associate at Clyde & Co.
In her presentation, Ms. Kassam spoke about the complexities in maritime casualties; what this means through the eyes of Sharia laws and 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 Mr. Majid Obaid bin Bashir, Chairman and Secretary General, EMAC.
The team at EMAC are preparing for a very active November by participating at ADIPEC, one of the largest oil and gas events in the world, from 11 – 14 November, 2019 in Abu Dhabi.
