Shipping Tier 1

The ‘top-tier shipping practice’ at Ince works alongside the firm’s offshore, insurance and trade practices to cover all the bases in maritime law. Managing partner Rania Tadros is a ‘market leader’ and advised Abu Dhabi National Tanker Company and National Gas Shipping Company, as the owners and managers of several vessels, on the bankruptcy of OW Bunker. Pavlo Samothrakis, whose practice spans shipping, trade and offshore matters, and litigator Mohamed El Hawawy are also noted.

Dispute resolution: arbitration and international litigation Tier 5

At Ince, Brian Boahene, Khalid Hamed and Mohamed El Hawawy  represent insurers and reinsurers in claims litigation. Boahene represents Union Insurance and RSA as insurers of a hotel that was closed for two years by a fire.

Commercial, corporate and M&A Tier 6

Ince's Rita Al Semaani Jansen handles a range of corporate and restructuring work, such as advising Papa Silver and Papa Aziz Jewellery on such an exercise. Other matters concern VAT and cross-border deals penetrating into Africa.
