Norton Rose Fulbright is a ‘formidable player in the shipping market’; it has ‘great understanding of the legal and regulatory context’, and this is ‘complemented by considerable strength in depth allowing the firm to deliver a seamless service to its clients’. It is active across regulatory matters and high-profile shipping disputes, where clients praise its ‘strong international expertise’ particularly in complex cross-border mandates; and it regularly acts for shipowner, corporate, insurance and banking clients as well as trading companies, energy companies and trade finance banks involved in shipping. Patrick Foss, who handles major shipping disputes; Charlotte Winter, who has a ‘profound understanding of legal and commercial issues in any dispute’; and Chris Zavos, who is ‘fantastic’, are recommended, as are Marie Kelly, who recently re-joined the London office from Piraeus; of counsels Jo Ward and Kevin Austin; and senior associate Emma Burrage.
