We are working with a long-established shipping company, with offices in Greece and London, to find a Senior Legal Counsel for their London office.

Joining a small team, you will be reporting in to the Head of Legal and will be working on a variety of day-to day legal, insurance and operational matters for a mixed fleet of vessels.

To be considered for this role, you must be a UK qualified Solicitor with at least 6 years’ PQE and will need to be able to demonstrate a strong desire to work in-house, with a demonstrable retained interest in, and long term commitment to, the shipping industry. Candidates from both a Private Practice and in-house environment will be considered. 

The new hire will be required to take on matters with a high degree of autonomy and will be working closely with the operations and chartering team, providing legal advice on charterparty and bill of lading issues, letters of indemnity and disputes/claims. This role will also involve working with the fleets war risk, defence and P&I insurers as necessary on any operational/voyage/dispute matters as they arise. 

In light of the above, you must have a commercial mindset and the ability to provide quick but accurate legal advice, be a problem solver who enjoys analysing situations in order to provide expert solutions… or even better avoid them before they become issues.

Apply now for immediate consideration or get in touch directly for a confidential discussion.
