Thomas Cooper’s Singapore Shipping Team recognised by Legal 500 Asia Pacific
Thomas Cooper’s Singapore Shipping Team has been recognised again as one of the leading Shipping law practices in the 2019 Legal 500 Asia Pacific guide. The Shipping Team, which is led by Johan Wong and Steffen Pedersen, was praised by independent research company Legal 500, who stated:
Thomas Cooper Singapore LLP’s team, which is jointly headed by Johan Wong and the ‘very commercial, smart and quick‘ Steffen Pedersen, provides ‘a very good level of service’. Clients include P&I clubs, major shipowners and hull insurers and those in the offshore industry. The team specialises in contentious matters spanning marine, shipping and offshore disputes as well as handling ship sales and leasebacks and arbitration work in London and Hong Kong and Singapore. The group was instructed by Britannia Steam Ship Insurance Association to act for the owners of the Thor Achiever following a collision and handled the casualty investigation and the negotiations pertaining to liability and quantum and also arranged for an application to be filed to establish a limitation fund.
