A leading P&I Club and member of the international group of P&I Clubs is recruiting into all of its major offices worldwide including Hong Kong, London, Singapore and Greece. Dating back over 100 years, the club is very highly rated within the maritime industry, handling P&I, FD&D and War Risks insurance claims on behalf of a wide ranging and prestigious list of members, ranging from ship owners and ship managers through to charterers and oil & gas companies. With offices located worldwide, the club offers a comprehensive service to its members, providing them with a high level of service regardless of where their claim originates, including offering underwriting, claims and loss prevention services. The club is looking to recruit lawyers into their claims handling teams to handle a wide range of shipping disputes on behalf of these members.

Candidates should be qualified lawyers with experience gained in contentious shipping law. All candidates ought to have trained with a law firm known for their shipping practice, with a particular focus on shipping litigation, before qualifying into a contentious shipping team. The role will encompass major aspects of shipping/maritime law including pollution, property damage, wreck removal, salvage and collision. Knowledge of piracy and war risks insurance would be of particular value to the club, given the recent growth in this area of law, although it is by no means compulsory as training will be provided as part of the job.
