Chris Fisher After studies at Poplar Marine College, Chris went on to sail on tankers and, having served as Chief Engineer for a number of years, he came ashore into the position of Marine Superintendent with Texaco Overseas Tankship in 1981. During this period he became particularly interested in the changes of the quality of marine fuels, brought about by more intense refinery techniques, and became involved with related technical issues in the maintenance and repair of the Texaco fleet. In 1984, he moved into consultancy, providing expert services to shipowners, and insurers, mainly in the field of liquid cargo losses and contaminations. He teamed up with Stephen Hodge, a chemist, and they wrote Fisher & Hodge on Bunkers. This was the first technical book devoted to the subject. In 1987, Chris joined Det Norske Veritas Petroleum Services (DNVPS), which had pioneered routine marine fuel quality testing and at that time tested some 20,000 samples a year. In 1990, Chris moved with his family to The Netherlands, where he set up a new fuel testing laboratory in Rotterdam for DNVPS. The business of fuel testing grew rapidly in this period and by 1996 DNVPS was contracted to test around 50,000 samples a year. In 1994, he joined up with Jonathan Lux and they produced Bunkers. Following his interest in laboratories and all aspects of liquid cargo loss control, he joined the Inspectorate group of companies in 1995, as Director of their Northern European companies in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. He quickly established a new dimension to Inspectorate - Bunker Claims - which focussed on providing laboratory and technical services to those involved with bunker disputes. Between 1995 and 2003, he attended many arbitrations and court hearings as a technical expert. During 2003, Chris decided to end his period in the inspection business and he and his family returned to England where he established his own company, Bunker Claims International Ltd, once again providing expert opinion in court and arbitration hearings on bunker matters. He also visits ships to investigate engine damages and bunker problems. Chris enjoys teaching and spends as much time as he can giving lectures and attending training course workshops. Jonathan Lux Jonathan joined Ince & Co in 1975, qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales in 1977, and in Hong Kong in 1986. Jonathan became a partner in 1983. He specialises in maritime law, insurance matters and international trade and has been involved in many landmark cases in these fields. He acts for the major P&I Clubs, their shipowner or charterer members, cargo interests, cargo sellers and buyers as well as the major insurers covering the divergent risks in issue. Jonathan has been a pioneer in the introduction of ADR (principally mediation) into his fields of practice. He is an accredited mediator (CEDR, The Academy of Experts and ADR Net) and leads the firm's ADR Group which will assume increasing importance in the light of the radical reforms to the Courts' Civil Procedure Rules. Jonathan is a Member of Mediation Panel of Mediationsstelle fur Wirtschaftskonflikte. With the increasing number of disputes involving bunkers, Jonathan has become a leading expert advising bunker suppliers, shipowners and charterers. He has been a Council Member of the International Bunker Industry Association and former co-ordinator of its working group on dispute resolution. He has drafted a number of the conditions which have now become standard clauses in the supply contracts and charterparty terms. Jonathan is co-author of The Law of Tug, Tow and Pilotage, The Law and Practice of Marine Insurance and Average and Bunkers. He is editor of Classification Societies and author of various other publications in the fields of maritime law, insurance and international trade. He is a frequent lecturer on these subjects both in the UK and on the international circuit.
