Shipping 2018: Analysis

This year, we highlight 518 leading lawyers in the field of shipping law, who stand out for their exceptional work handling sector-related contractual and financial matters, as well as disputes and casualty cases. 

Shipping 2018: Trends & Conclusions

Shipping has in recent years experienced, in the industry’s own words, a crisis. Brought on by the economic downturn alongside considerable changes in the market, shipping lawyers have felt the brunt of the changing tides. However, many of them are finding plenty of work to keep themselves occupied and there are now signs that what was at first feared to be a terminal decline may in fact be a reshaping of the global market.

Transport 2017: Analysis

This year’s Who’s Who Legal Transport edition presents 801 aviation lawyers across three chapters – contentious, regulatory and finance – alongside 522 shipping lawyers. In total, lawyers from 536 firms across 69 countries are recognised.

Transport 2017: Trends

The transport sector has experienced some turbulent times this year. Both the aviation and shipping markets are facing significant challenges, causing serious problems for companies operating within them. As a result, the legal market offering services to these two branches of transport law is reflecting this environment, and adapting too; the trend for the increasing establishment of boutique firms has continued well into 2016 and is likely to be seen next year too. Yet despite such pressures, the legal market in the area is still experiencing a lot of activity from clients and practitioners, who are positive about its future.

Transport 2016: Analysis

Our latest Transport publication presents 866 aviation listings, divided into contentious, regulatory and finance segments, alongside 480 shipping lawyers from a total of 555 firms across 76 countries.

Trends in the Transport Legal Marketplace: 2016

a

The past year has been another interesting one for aviation and shipping practitioners. From the Germanwings airline crash to new EU regulations and an increase in alternative financing options, those in the aviation field have experienced a diverse and evolving range of issues, with the expectation that 2016 will hold similar levels of work. In the shipping market, depressed cargo prices and an excess of vessels are causing clubs to become even more cost-conscious, spelling trouble for some in the litigation space.

Legal Marketplace Analysis

Our new Transport publication lists 798 aviation practitioners, divided into contentious, regulatory and finance segments, alongside 465 shipping lawyers from a total of 533 firms across 77 countries as leaders in these areas of law.

We have highlighted a number of firms for their international and domestic reputations. Holman Fenwick Willan has an impressive depth of expertise across aviation and shipping law from its offices covering Australasia, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle-East. Likewise, Clyde & Co is listed in all segments across an expansive global network. Norton Rose Fulbright, Clifford Chance and White & Case excel in aviation finance. Meanwhile, Ince & Co perform exceptionally well in our shipping research. Within the US, Holland & Knight stands out for its all-inclusive expertise and Condon & Forsyth also features for its eminent position in the aviation contentious market.

We also select the 10 most highly regarded individuals in the world for aviation finance, regulatory and contentious, as well as for shipping. 

Research: Trends & Conclusions

Across our aviation-based research, a distinction can be made between those lawyers and firms who offer the full range of aviation services and those who have developed niche expertise in one particular discipline. Several contributors to the research have commented on the transitional nature of the sector, reflecting the changing focus of the contentious field, increasing US and EU regulatory activity and encouraging signs for post-recession commercial aviation finance after a period when predominantly European banks retracted from the market. Subsequently, levels of work have varied for lawyers depending on the breadth of their practice, and firms with a global presence have been able to take advantage of increased activity in the Middle East and Asian markets. In terms of the shipping market, contentious lawyers have seen continued opportunities for large charter party and insurance-related work, while refinancings and ship owner bankruptcies have driven activity for leading shipping finance practitioners.

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Shipping & Maritime 2010

Our extensive research uncovers 449 shipping and maritime experts worldwide. We highlight some of the leading firms and practitioners.

Research Trends and Conclusions: Shipping & Maritime 2010

Jessica Harvey - Who's Who Legal

“Litigation is a driving force for almost every law firm in the UK today, because corporate work levels are nothing like they were before.” In a tough economic climate it is unsurprising that lawyers everywhere have experienced a consistent rise in disputes-related work. Shipping and maritime, as our source notes, is certainly no different. But this is only part of the picture: freight rates are still low, arbitration lists are lengthening and the number of piracy incidents continues to rise.
