Happy New Year to all our followers on the first working day of 2017. We will continue to look closely at what matters in maritime and commercial law. Once the minor matter of Brexit is out of the way, there are at least three rather important Supreme Court decisions in the pipeline — on safe ports, combined dangers, and (vitally) the effect of joint names insurance on liability (The Ocean Victory  EWCA Civ 16); on “per claim” limits in insurance (AIG v Woodman  EWCA Civ 367); and on the right to recover more by way of commercial damages than the losses that appear on any balance sheet (the combined appeals in The New Flamenco  EWCA 1299 and Swynson v Lowick Rose  EWCA Civ 629). And much more. As ever, watch this space.
