“We have been working on the follow-on Air Cargo claims for some years in other jurisdictions including in the Dutch proceedings. We are pleased now to join the English proceedings at this stage because the structure of the future conduct of the claims and defence will be determined by the Court this week. Notably Mr Justice Peter Smith has been confirmed as the trial judge and he is clearly keen to press the matter ahead as soon as possible.”
