Jonathan Silver - Norton Rose Fulbright

Within: Asset finance (including aviation and shipping finance)

Very well connected to the traditional banks that remain active in the shipping finance market, and benefiting from deeply entrenched relationships among many of the Chinese lessors that are increasingly providing finance solutions, Norton Rose Fulbright remains at the forefront of the market. Able to leverage its international network, particularly in prime maritime locations including Singapore, the firm has the critical mass and the expertise to handle not just commoditised mandates but also heavily structured ones that involve significant cross-border expertise. 'Very experienced' team head Jonathan Silver provides 'solution-oriented and commercial advice'.

Shipping

Within: Shipping

A key component of a global shipping team that includes experts across the Asia-Pacific region, North America, South Africa and Europe, Norton Rose Fulbright has the critical mass and geographical scope to handle the full array of litigation and commercial shipping work, from both a domestic and a multi-jurisdictional perspective. On the wet shipping front, the recent relocation of 'meticulous and detail-oriented' master mariner Peter Glover from the firm's London office further enhances the office's 'very strong marine casualty offering', which also includes the 'superb' Jim James, who provides 'clear and effective advice' to clients in relation to ship arrests and international shipbuilding disputes. Although he is primarily focused on shipping finance matters, the 'solution-oriented' Jonathan Silver also handles a range of commercial shipping work, including as it relates to the sale and purchase of vessels, pooling arrangements and shipbuilding contracts.
