Trinity Insurance Barrister’s Joint Article on ‘The Renos’ Case


Specialist insurance barrister, Graham Bartlett has written a joint article that has been published in the latest edition of The Journal, the Chartered Insurance Institute's leading insurance industry publication.

The article, co-authored with Maria Carolina de Franca of Vieira Rezende, lawyers in Rio de Janeiro, examines the recent case of ‘The Renos’ [2018] EWCA Civ 230 where the Court of Appeal considered the financial implications of expensive repairs to a merchant ship. In 2012 the ship was on a laden voyage in the Red Sea when a fire broke out in the engine room causing extensive damage. The main issues of the case revolved around notice of abandonment of a constructive total loss.

Graham’s practice is focused on insurance related litigation following his career as a Chartered Loss Adjuster. He is therefore able to provide practical and pragmatic insight in cases involving all aspects of insurance disputes. He also deals with building and construction disputes involving damage to both residential and commercial property, as well as claims under the insurance clauses in the JCT Standard Form of Building Contract and on Contractors All Risks insurance policies.

An edited version of the article can be found on Graham’s Blog, that regularly examines recent developments in insurance litigation.
