“Subrogation: having paid a claim, what should insurers do to get their money back?”.  He will cover 3 scenarios, for example (1) a cargo damage claim where the insurers can bring a claim against the P&I insurers and/or the ship owners; (2) damage caused by a ship to port facilities where the insurers then pursue a claim against the Charterers of the vessel for nominating an unsafe port; (3) a cargo claim arising as a result of a collision by the carrying ship with another ship where the insurers seek to recover from the carrying ship and/or the other ship.
