"Sensible, reasonable and efficient" (Chambers and Partners)
Waterson Hicks is a well-established, City-based legal practice whose expertise in shipping and commercial law is renowned. Since 1990 our teams of dedicated, skilful lawyers have successfully served an expanding client base.
Our highly specialised legal teams offer an effective and speedy response to clients, with an emphasis on dry shipping, admiralty, marine insurance, commodities, ship sale & purchase and transactional work. Our clients include major corporations and business entities, leading blue-chip companies, state-owned organisations, shipowners, oil companies, energy traders, insurers, P&I Clubs, financial institutions and governments.
Our commercially minded people, some of whom have almost 40 years' experience in legal practice, together with the firm's commitment to quality are the cornerstone of our reputation, enabling us to deal successfully with the most substantial cases.
At Waterson Hicks we value a creative approach since our clients' needs are increasingly complex and spread across geographic borders and jurisdictions and often there are no established solutions or precedents.
Waterson Hicks is at the heart of London's shipping and commercial law world and delivers timely, individual and expert personal attention to each of our clients.
