Singapore > Shipping: foreign firms

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 GreenIain Young, Martin Brown and Huay Yee Kwan are the other key partners.
