Verrill Dana Maritime Attorney Ben Ford Speaks to The Maritime Executive About Impact of Arctic Shipping
Verrill Dana attorney Ben Ford spoke with The Maritime Executive, reporter Paul Benecki about the impact of arctic shipping on U.S. maritime law in an article entitled, "How Will Arctic Shipping Affect Maritime Law?" In the article, Ben discusses the challenges that the U.S. faces to keep up with developments in the arctic, including environmental regulation, legal liabilities and vessel construction.
Verrill Dana, in conjunction with the Marine Oceanographic Technology Network will host a symposium on "Marine Technology and the North" which will address many of these same issues. The symposium will coincide with the presence of senior arctic officials attending The Arctic Council Plenary Sessions, set this year in Portland, Maine.
