Hill Dickinson LLP is ‘highly recommended‘ for shipping work; the ‘growing‘ team welcomed Beth Bradley from Clyde & Co LLP and has also made several hires internationally. The London team, which is supported by its international network of experts, handles a raft of wet and dry work and has recently been instructed on several high-profile casualty claims and dry shipping disputes. Its clients include ship owners, P&I Clubs, traders, salvors and insurers. It also has a strong cruise sector following. Global head of shipping Julian Clark led advice for The Lion Group on a dispute brought by Classic Maritime Inc, which examines issues regarding force majeure and exception clauses. Head of yachts Tony Allen focuses on yacht insurance disputes and transactions, while David Pitlarge is noted for his experience in dry shipping work and Adrian Marsh, who is based in Manchester, is head of cargo and logistics. Consultant Robert Wallis specialises in admiralty law.
