Case tried by Shanghai Maritime Court applying British case law is included in the Informa i-law database


Recently, the case of Winship Maritime Inc. V. China Shipping Industry Co., Ltd. & COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry (Yangzhou) Co., Ltd.tried by the Shanghai Maritime Court has been included in the Informa i-law database, which is published by Informa UK plc., a well-known British publishing house with extensive influence in the field of international commercial and maritime legal affairs.

This is the first case involving shipbuilding commission agreement dispute in which the British case law was applied. It was selected as one of the top ten typical cases of national maritime trials in 2020, providing insights of judgment for the application of foreign case law to trials.

Informa i-Law database has been including cases in succession tried by the Shanghai Maritime Court over recent years. To a certain extent, it reflects that the international shipping industry shows more attention to the trend of maritime judicial conditions and more recognition of judicial judgments made by the Shanghai Maritime Court. Additionally, the acceptance of judicial opinions of the Shanghai Maritime Court is continuing to increase in recent years.(Translated by Ji Ruhan  Yang Xian)
