Derek Luxford's article featured in Maritime Risk International

A recent article written by consultant Derek Luxford, titled 'Tuna nicely packaged for container cargo limitation case', was featured in London based publication Maritime Risk International. It was on a recent English Commercial Court judgment which departed in some respects from an Australian Full Federal Court judgment some years ago which had some legal and factual similarities. As with many shipping judgments it involves interpretation of widely adopted international shipping conventions to which Australia is a party. Something to think about the next time you are eating tuna.
