Wadkins Associates are a specialist transport law recruitment company with a proven and highly regarded reputation in the shipping, energy and aviation sectors, we regularly assist talented lawyers, both from private practice and in-house, to secure new opportunities in London and internationally.
Those with a transactional and non-contentious background within the shipping and offshore sectors are becoming increasingly desirable in the market as the work moves increasingly from the partner’s caseloads to that of the associates. The recent shift in the market has caused a gap in senior associates with this experience and therefore ship finance lawyers whom have a broader experience across construction contracts and refit contracts are increasingly desired.
Our client is an international law firm with an outstanding reputation within the offshore and shipping industries. Following several significant partner hires into their London office they are extremely busy and are now looking to grow their non-contentious offering. The team, headed by an industry expert with considerable experience in the offshore sector is small but excellent with an emphasis on big-ticket contracts and financings.
The team covers a broad mixture of non-contentious work drafting contracts for the construction, sale, purchase, financing and refit of vessels and rigs. With several high-profile clients and with the broad nature of the general company the successful candidate would also be exposed to some general finance work as well as work with foreign bonds.
An exciting opportunity to join a dynamic team the successful individual will have 4-5 years of experience in the non-contentious shipping/ offshore sector or with ship/ offshore finance experience.
