info@.. beware the service of proceedings

On 21 December 2005 an English court rejected a last minute challenge by Bernuth Lines Ltd against an arbitration ruling against it in a maritime case.   The dispute had arisen over the charter of a ship to High Seas Shipping Ltd.

The lawyers acting for High Seas had e-mailed an offer in settlement to Bernuth, which if not accepted High Seas had stated it would proceed to arbitration.  As this e-mail and subsequent e-mails were ignored, it did proceed to arbitration.  On 29 July 2005 the arbitrator issued his final award in favour of High Seas.
