Ince hires additional Partner to further bolster shipping team
International legal and professional services firm Ince has today announced the lateral hire of Eric Eyo as Partner to its world-leading shipping team.
During his legal career, Mr Eyo has been involved in a number of significant shipping disputes. He has particular expertise in handling disputes in relation to the full spectrum of shipping contracts including charterparties, contracts of affreightment, bills of lading, letters of indemnity, bank guarantees, MOAs, shipbuilding agreements and general agency agreements.
Having joined from Campbell Johnston Clark where he has practised since 2013 Mr Eyo’s previous roles had seen him gain experience at Eversheds LLP, and Clifford Chance LLP.
Ince’s maritime division in London was further strengthened earlier this year with the arrival of ten fee earners from specialist shipping law firm Bentleys, Stokes and Lowless, global shipping expert Julian Clark as Global Senior Partner, Stuart McAlpine joining as Global Head of Marine Projects, previously a Partner with Clyde & Co, as well as new Partner and master mariner Martin Dalby to further strengthen the firm's wet shipping capabilities. Incisive Law LLC, the Singapore member of the Ince Group, also added two mariners to its team in Singapore – Binoy Dubey and James Ng - growing Ince’s worldwide mariner team to one of the largest mariner teams within the legal sector.
