Richards Hogg Lindley focus on LOF 2011 changes

Richards Hogg Lindley (Hellas) Ltd. hosted a seminar entitled “LOF 2011 – The Changes” at the Yacht Club of Greece on 29th March 2012.
Keith Sturges, Director of RHL London, Fellow of the Association of Average Adjusters and member of the advisory committee for drafting LOF 2011 examined the changes in the clauses with emphasis on container ships.

Dr. Maria Adamopoulou, legal advisor of Tsavliris Salvage followed up on this presentation with the Salvors’ perspective of “The Changes” and concentrated on environmental salvage awards which should recognize the environmental benefit conferred by salvors, and which could be achieved by primarily amending the relevant provisions of the 1989 Salvage Convention, a suggestion mooted by the International Salvage Unions’ (ISU).
She furthermore stated that salvors do not expect to be paid unless there is a benefit conferred and they fully expect an environmental award to be commensurate with that benefit. Dr. Adamopoulou established her arguments by presenting a number of remarkable salvage operations in which Tsavliris haves been involved with.
