  • DATE:2017-6-5
  • The Book "Judicial Theory & Practice Overview Concerning the Belt and Road Initiative: Maritime Case Selections" is chiefly edited by Ms. He Rong, vice president of the Supreme People's Court, published by the Law Press of China, and officially circulated in December 2016. The Supreme People's Court selects a total of 24 typical cases for this book which consists of 4 chapters: Dispute over Contract of Carriage of Goods by Sea, Dispute over Ocean Freight Forwarding Contract, Dispute over Damages in Tort, and Other Disputes. The said cases provide significant guidance on how to deal with practical legal issues related to the Belt and Road Initiative for the future and warn Chinese enterprises against potential legal risks in the process of "going abroad".

    Of the cases selected for this book, eight were wholly or partly handled by our lawyers, representing 33.3% of all the selected cases. The eight cases are respectively:

    1. Haichiman Shipping S.A. v. Shanghai Shenfu Chemical Co., Ltd. and Dorval Kaiun K.K. (dispute over cargo damages under contract for carriage of goods by sea)
    2. Guangxi Xianlin Import and Export Co., Ltd. V. Lucretia Shipping SA and China Ocean Shipping Agency (PENAVICO) Qinzhou Co., Ltd. (dispute over contract of carriage of goods by sea)
    3. Fuzhou Jifeng Shipping Ltd. v. DAE HO SHIPPING CO., LTD. (dispute over ship collision damages)
    4. Jiangxi Rare Earth and Rare Metals Tungsten Group Import & Export Co., Ltd. v. RCL FEEDER PTE LTD and other entities (dispute over liabilities for maritime property damage)
    5. Guangxi Port Qing Oils & Fat Co., Ltd. (广西港青油脂有限公司) v. Owner or Bareboat Charterer of M/V "MYKONOS" (Dispute over ship arrest application)
    6. Daewoo Shipbuilding Marine Engineering Co., Ltd. v. Rongjin Corp. (荣晋公司) (petitory action of dispute over ship mortgage contract)
    7. DVB Bank SE v. ISIM Amin Limited and ShokoohSahar Kish Shipping Co. (dispute over ship ownership)
    8. Case of Application by Bunkeers Marine Pte Ltd. for Pre-litigation Arrest of M/V "NASICO LION"

    The cases related to the Belt and Road Initiative are of apparent foreign-related features and mostly involve participation of foreign entities, with some involving identification of applicable legal provisions of countries along the Belt and Road or the application of international conventions through the grasp of international rules. Handling such cases demands a high level of legal expertise and English language skills of the handling judges and lawyers. One third of all cases selected by the Supreme People's Court for the book "Judicial Theory & Practice Overview Concerning the Belt and Road Initiative: Maritime Case Selections" are handled by our firm, which illustrates our firm's capacity in dealing with major foreign-related cases with enriched experience and also fully demonstrates our lawyers' high level of competency and professionalism in providing foreign-related legal service.
