Lightship: Former partner hit us with huge claims

Contracts signed by a former partner at Lightship Chartering have made the broker agency subject to sizeable claims, writes senior management headed by owner and Chairman Morten Have in the broker's financial report.

This is evident in the 2015 annual report from Copenhagen-based Lightship Chartering.
