Barber Dubai Shipping Agencies Co. v. Angel Maritime Inc.

In Charters of Ships on (Updated )

This was a dispute over fees payable to a broker by a shipowner. The charter party provided for daily demurrage which had been unpaid by the charterer. The shipowner attempted to set-off the unpaid demurrage from the fees payable to the broker. Both at first instance and on appeal the court held that the shipowner was not entitled to claim a set-off.
