Recent work also includes obtaining urgent injunctive relief in respect of disputes arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, and advising a broad range of interests in the shipping industry with respect to force majeure and frustration issues.

Jason receives regular instructions to represent shipyards and buyers in respect to disputes arising out of the construction of commercial vessels and luxury superyachts. Such disputes typically concern construction defects and complex expert evidence. Jason is also regularly instructed with respect to disputes arising from the chartering of superyachts, by both owners and charterers. According to the directories, Jason is “well known for representing clients in superyacht and shipbuilding cases” (Chambers & Partners, 2021).

Recent work includes:

  • An ongoing LMAA arbitration concerning the non-completion of a luxury superyacht worth €63m. Jason is instructed by the buyer.
  • An ongoing LMAA arbitration concerning a defective engine system and deck mist system onboard one of the largest charter superyachts in the world. Jason is instructed by the buyer as sole counsel.
  • An ongoing LMAA arbitration concerning the defective design and construction of a 53m superyacht worth €26m. The case involves highly technical expert evidence. Jason is sole counsel.
  • A two-week LMAA arbitration concerning the non-delivery and specification of a luxury superyacht (led by David Allen QC). The case included issues of critical path analysis, stability and seaworthiness. Jason had an extensive role at the hearing and cross-examined a number of witnesses.

Jason also advises buyers of luxury superyachts at a pre-contractual stage, to assist in the review and amendment of draft yacht construction agreements. A recent example is advising the buyer of a €20m superyacht to be built by a well-known Italian shipyard. He accordingly has an in-depth understanding of the standard form of a wide range of shipyard superyacht contracts.

Insurance & Reinsurance is a mainstay of Jason’s practice and he is regularly instructed to appear in Court and arbitration (including Bermuda Form) to represent both assured and insurers. Recent work includes:

  • ProSight Global Inc v (1) Randall & Quilter II Holdings Limited; (2) Randall & Quilter Underwriting Management Holdings Limited [2021] EWHC 228 (Comm): a successful application for summary judgment, concerning the proper construction of a best endeavours obligation to procure the release of Funds at Lloyd’s. The 114-paragraph judgment also contains a detailed analysis of the meaning of the “best endeavours” obligation (led by Richard Waller QC).
  • Bermuda Form Arbitration (2020 – 2021): acting for an insurer in a coverage claim brought by a religious organisation, worth $34m (led by Gavin Kealy QC).
  • Representing a major insurer in a 2-week arbitration against a FTSE 100 medical device manufacturer in a $50m coverage claim under an excess layer policy containing Bermuda Form wording (led by Alistair Schaff QC).
  • Advising a major insurer listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange with respect to the proper construction of its business interruption policy wording, and its reinsurance policy, further to the spread of Coronavirus in Africa (with Jonathan Gaisman QC).
  • Providing coverage advice to a major insurer with respect a number of its credit risks policies in light of Coronavirus (with Colin Edelman QC and Thomas Plewman QC).
  • Acting for an oil major with respect to a claim for cover under its non-payment insurance policy (as sole counsel).

Jason also regularly acts and advises on marine insurance disputes, and has recently advised an assured mortgagee of a vessel as to whether a notice of abandonment is required where a claim for constructive total loss is made under a Mortgagees Interest Insurance (MII) policy (with Peter MacDonald Eggers QC).

Jason is presently advising a wide range of interests in respect of insurance and reinsurance issues arising out of COVID-19, including the proper construction of business interruption wording (with and without a physical damage proviso), aggregation, “hours limit” clauses, causation (Orient Express etc.) and quantum. Ongoing work also includes advising with respect to trade credit insurance policies and D&O insurance.

In addition to his shipbuilding and superyacht work, Jason acts frequently in a range of pure construction matters. He has received instructions on claims involving a wide range of issues, including disputes arising from design flaws, delays, suspension and termination of work, loss and expense entitlements, and the question of whether premises are unfit for purpose pursuant to the Defective Premises Act 1972. He is accordingly familiar with the standard form contracts in this area, including FIDIC, JCT, ICE and RIBA.

Jason’s work in this area involves both domestic and offshore construction projects, and he was recently instructed to advise with respect to a number of high-value claims concerning an offshore oil rig. He is also regularly instructed to advise parties during the course of ongoing projects, which often include a host of professional negligence issues. Recent arbitral work includes a multi-million pound property construction dispute on JCT terms (as sole counsel), and a multi-million dollar ICC dispute arising out of the construction of the South Stream pipeline project.

Jason’s insurance practice often overlaps with construction work and he has advised on a number of “construction all risks” policies.

Jason is recognised by the directories for his work in this area: “Hard-working and just really impressively clever, he provides a work product that is exceptionally user friendly” (Chambers & Partners, 2021).

Jason is currently instructed by a state-owned natural gas company on two parallel and highly complex arbitrations, with hearings scheduled throughout 2021 and 2022 (led by David Allen QC). The claims are each worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Recent work includes representing the Fortune 500 company, Apache Corporation, and its subsidiaries in expedited Commercial Court proceedings which gave rise to numerous interim hearings (led by David Allen QC): Apache Beryl Ltd v Marathon Oil UK LLC [2017] EWHC 2258 (Comm) (order for an expedited trial made by Mr Justice Males), [2017] EWHC 2462 (Comm) (Sir Jeremy Cooke granted permission to amend pleadings 2 weeks before expedited trial, considering CIP Properties [2015] EWHC 1345 (TCC)), [2017] EWHC 2504 (Comm) (Mr Justice Knowles permitted introduction of additional expert evidence and associated material 1 week before expedited trial).

The case concerned a dispute between joint venture partners engaged in the exploitation of natural gas in the North Sea. The main issue to be resolved was whether the outgoing joint venture partner and operator, Apache, had given the remaining joint venture partners “reasonable assurances” that the new entrant would be capable of performing its obligations within the meaning of the parties’ Heads of Agreement. An expedited trial was ordered by Males J as that issue needed to be resolved in order for Apache’s sale to complete before the long-stop date contained in a Put and Call Option Agreement. The case was readied for trial in 7 weeks with a successful outcome. Counsel for the Defendants submitted before Males J that expedition should not be ordered as the parties required 1 year to prepare for trial.

Jason was also instructed to represent an international company specialising in offshore oil and gas exploration in a UNCITRAL arbitration (Paris seat) in a claim worth in excess of US$ 2bn (led by David Allen QC), and recently completed a two-week LMAA arbitration for an oil major concerning the unsuccessful conversion of a combined sulphur/bitumen carrier which led to deflagrations onboard the vessel in Dublin (led by David Allen QC).

Financial services is a rapidly expanding area of Jason’s practice and he was recently instructed by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme in a multi-million pound claim against a number of financial institutions arising out of the sale of PPI policies to thousands of consumers (led by Christopher Butcher QC and James Cutress QC). Jason also regularly advises in this area and recent work includes a number of cases concerning the mis-selling of interest rate hedging products.

Jason regularly accepts instructions in the field of aviation. Recent work includes acting for a private luxury charter company in respect of breach of aircraft lease agreements and non-payment of security deposits under aircraft sale contracts, and advising a cargo airline in a professional negligence claim (with Patrick Lawrence QC). Jason also has recent experience with cases concerning the carriage of goods by air.

Jason regularly acts in professional negligence cases. Recent work includes Saab v Dangate Consulting Ltd & Ors [2020] EWHC 48 (Comm), [2019] EWHC 2602 (Comm), [2019] EWHC 1558 (Comm), [2018] EWHC 546 (Comm), where he represented shareholders of a bank in a breach of confidentiality claim against ex-Scotland Yard private investigators. Other work includes acting for the claimant against a firm of accountants and tax advisers with respect to negligent advice to invest in supposedly tax-efficient film investment schemes, and advising a cargo airline in a professional negligence claim (concerning both solicitor and barrister negligence).
