The shipping industry is in the midst of a resurgence. With shipbuilding continuing at a rapid pace and the emergence of sophisticated technologies disrupting the sector, the opportunity to participate in the industry is not only rewarding, it also proves to be ever-changing and evolving.
Our client, a highly regarded firm with a global footprint, is seeking a strong associate to join their shipping team in London. The office is staffed by exceptional partners who are universally regarded as the sector’s most important lawyers. Moreover, the firm emphasises practice development and the chosen candidate will be supported as they move forward with their career.
The team concentrates on cargo claims and acts for insurers in bringing claims against carriers and freight forwarders. Additionally, the team are heavily engaged in numerous piracy cases and their subsequent cargo matters. The ideal candidate will be familiar with the differing offering of a cargo practice but importantly also be comfortable with traditional dry shipping work covering charterparties and bills of lading.
The successful candidate will be an England and Wales associate with 3 to 5 years’ post qualification experience gained from another leading shipping firm. Crucially, established interest in the sector is desired.
