We offer over 100 dedicated marine legal specialists, including master mariners and former ship managers, working across the globe with the strength and depth to handle the full range of marine business.
Our team appears in the top tiers of the independent legal directories and is described as ‘knowledgeable and very responsive – absolutely brilliant’. We were recognised at the 2016 Lloyd’s List Global Awards gaining a ‘highly commended’ in the category of ‘i-Law Maritime Lawyer of the Year’ in respect of our services to the passenger shipping industry and were finalists in the 2017 Lloyds List Global Awards Maritime Law Firm of the Year. We are considered to be leaders in the casualty, commercial shipping, cruise, yacht and commodities sectors. Our mariner lawyers have served on board a variety of vessels allowing us to offer the highest possible standard of expertise in managing claims and casualties.
Hill Dickinson’s core shipping practice is enhanced by our personal injury and regulatory team, which is generally recognised as the leading marine specialist in its field in London. Last year it gained recognition as one of the four shortlisted firms in the category Defendant Personal Injury Team of the Year at the 2016 Eclipse Personal Injury Awards while team leader (and marine, trade and energy business group head), Maria Pittordis, was named Defendant Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year and has recently been awarded the ACQ Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year for 2017.
