Jack has a practice in marine, trade and energy matters with an emphasis on shipping. He regularly acts for ship / yacht owners, charterers, managers, P&I Clubs, underwriters, brokers, ports and shipyards. Prior to joining Shoreside Law, he served at sea as a deck officer in the merchant navy, spent five years at an International Group P&I Club and was also a partner at another international shipping law firm.
