Stephenson Harwood LLP significantly strengthened its capabilities in cross-border ship finance and offshore maritime transactions with several key hires from Ince, including shipping expert Martin Brown, who joined in November 2018, and maritime disputes specialist John Simpson, who joined in 2019, along with four associates experienced in shipping, aviation finance and international trade. The team has broad-ranging expertise in aviation finance, including US and European ECA-backed financings, commercial debt financings and derivatives. Saugata Mukherjee‘s expertise in aviation finance includes secured lending structures, portfolio acquisitions, pre-delivery payment financings and operating leases. Shipping practice head Gregg Johnston is supported by Martin Green and Iain Young. Counsel Michelle Runagall-Orlić is a key name for cross-border aviation financing, acquisition and leasing transactions.
Arguably one of ‘Singapore’s pre-eminent shipping practices‘, Stephenson Harwood LLP fields a team of ‘top-tier lawyers‘ with wide-ranging expertise in wet and dry shipping, ship finance and marine-related disputes. The practice has been bolstered by the arrival of Gregory Xu from Clifford Chance, a banking partner with experience in shipping and offshore oil and gas financing, particularly for FPSOs, FSRUs and LNG vessels. The hire of former Ince managing partner John Simpson in May 2019 has significantly strengthened the firm’s bench strength in shipbuilding, charterparty agreements and dispute resolution, including subsea construction disputes. Head of shipping Gregg Johnston is particularly noted for his experience in English-law governed financings in Korea; Martin Green, Iain Young, Martin Brown and Huay Yee Kwan are the other key partners.
