Posted on: 29 September 2016

Holman Fenwick Willan won the Maritime Lawyer of the Year 2016 at the Lloyd’s List Global Awards, held at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich on 28 September. The awards were attended by 450 industry professionals and were hosted by Fiona Bruce.

The Maritime Lawyer of the Year Award, as sponsored by i-Law, celebrates the very best in the legal profession who have offered the highest quality service to the maritime industry over the past 12 months.

Holman Fenwick Willan stood out for our continued work at the forefront of legal developments  – in particular advising Cargill International in its successful Supreme Court application, developing the laws surrounding off-hire provision in an amended NYPE form,  and our work advising a range of owners who were affected by the high profile bankruptcy of OW bunkers.

In addition, Daniel Martin was highlighted in regards to his work with the firm’s export controls and sanctions practice, particularly concerning Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Libya, Syria, Ukraine and Russia which continues to be a fast paced area of law with significant opportunities.

In his opening speech, Richard Meade, managing editor of Lloyd’s List said ‘The Lloyd’s List award series are about bringing our business community together. It’s about celebrating our combined achievements, but it’s also about recognising the transformation that is happening across our businesses. At Lloyd’s List we think that the future belongs to those who can successfully tap into the opportunities that this transformation presents.’
