SLOPS (Environmental Litigation)
28 February 2008
 
Timagenis Law Firm acted on behalf of two Greek companies specialized in the protection of the marine environment and in pollution cleaning operations in a claim against the International Oil Pollution Compensation Fund (IOPC Fund) in connection with the recovery of the pollution cleaning compensation.  The case involved the definition of the term "ship" under the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage (1992 Civil Liability Convention) for the first time worldwide.
 
Following a 2006 decision of the Greek Supreme Court in plenary session, which upheld the views successfully argued by the lawyers of Timagenis Law Firm, the case was referred back to the court of Appeals of Piraeus and it was successfully terminated in February 2008.
