Tiejha Smyth, Deputy Director at North P&I Club’s FD&D Department attempts to shed light on the possible impact of the 2020 sulphur cap on contracts and charterparties. Ms. Smyth advises operators to consider matters such as bunker quality clauses, performance guarantees and fines for non-compliance early, in order to avoid future problems.
Tiejha’s litigation experience began in 2000 when she joined a utility company to deal with equipment damage claims. She joined UK law firm, Ward Hadaway, in 2002 and qualified as a solicitor in 2004, specialising in commercial litigation and dealing with High Court proceedings and Alternative Dispute Resolution. She joined North’s FD&D Department in November 2008 and primarily assists North’s European and UK Members with FD&D matters, and regularly delivers presentations and training on a range of FD&D subjects. Tiejha was promoted to the management team in 2016. She is the FD&D representative on North’s 2020 expertise group and a member of the BIMCO 2020 charterparty clause sub-committee.
