The case of the day is Kiribati Seafood Co. v. Dechert LLP (Mass. 2017). Kiribati and Olympic Packer, LLC were Washington companies. Kiribati owned the Madee, a fishing vessel, which it chartered to Olympic and to Dojin Co. for fishing tuna in the Pacific. The ship’s rudder was damaged, and it was put in dry dock at the port of Papeete, Tahiti, for repair. The dry dock collapsed, and Kiribati’s insurer, Lloyd’s, deemed the ship a constructive total loss. Kiribati hired two lawyers with Coudert Brothers to sue the port in the Commercial Court of Papeete. The lawyers later left Coudert and joined Dechert, continuing to represent Kiribati.
