Ever Given – Legal Ramifications

By now, you will have seen the images of the EVER GIVEN blocking the Suez Canal.

By the looks of it, the solution for the problem and the refloating of the ship might take more than just a few hours and consequently, people in the Maritime industry are starting to contemplate the ‘what if’ and the ‘who-is-going-to-pay’ scenarios on the back of the enormous loss caused by the delay of ships waiting to pass the Suez Canal.

Attached is an analysis of the contractual and legal forces at play, meant to provide some guidance on the legal matters at hand.
