On 27th September 2012 Van Steenderen MainportLawyers hosted together with 14 other law firms from different jurisdictions the International Maritime Law Seminar. This year’s topic was Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Decisions”, with focus on several sub-topics including arbitration awards and court judgments, resolutions, interim orders and measures, security, mortgages, and insolvency proceedings.

Some 250 key people from the London Shipping and Insurance market attended the seminar in Gibsons Hall and we believe the seminar was very well received. Charlotte van Steenderen presented a paper titled “The Recognition and Enforcement of Judicial Orders and Proceedings in the Netherlands”, especially focusing on the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments, enforcement of foreign arbitral awards, judicial sale of vessels and insolvency proceedings.
