St Paul’s Square-based practice says three of the promotions are in its marine, trade and energy division with one each in health and business services
Liverpool law firm Hill Dickinson has announced the promotion of five legal directors across its three core business groups.
The St Paul’s Square-based practice says three of the promotions are in its marine, trade and energy division with one each in health and business services.
They include superyachts lawyers Thomas Frei and Alex Teji in marine based in the London (West End) office, commodities and cargo lawyer Claire Messer in marine based in the London (City) office, health lawyer David Hill, who is also based in London (City), and private client lawyer Susan Sherry of the Liverpool office.
Thomas Frei specialises in superyacht transactional work and advises clients in a range of services including construction projects, refit contracts, sale and purchase agreements and finance of new-build and pre-owned yachts.
Alex Teji advises a diverse international client base of UHNWIs on all aspects of superyacht acquisition and ownership, with particular prominence in the Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and South East Asian markets. His promotion follows his appointment from senior associate to legal director in May 2018.
Claire Messer joined the firm in 2001, initially focusing on subrogated cargo recoveries and transportation matters, before broadening her expertise in the field of charter party and commodity trade disputes.
David Hill specialises in the practice of public law, primary care, information governance and regulatory proceedings. David has been providing advice to clients in the health and social care sector in England since 2007.
Susan Sherry advises UHNW private clients on all aspects of inheritance and capital gains tax issues and succession planning. This includes the drafting of wills, powers of attorney and trusts.
