Liverpool maritime law lecturer Anna Kaparaki has been named as one of the top 100 women in shipping for the fifth year running.

Anna lectures at the Faculty of Engineering and Technology Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). She was selected from more than 1,000 women to feature in the top 100 list, a list she has featured in every year since its inception in 2019.

Anna is “dual-qualified” as a solicitor specialising in marine and shipping law. She has a particular focus on shipboard and offshore casualty claims, hull and machinery marine insurance claims, charter-party disputes and fleet purchase transactions.

She was called to the Athens Bar Association in 2005 and currently works as a senior solicitor with Mackinnons Solicitors LLP, which is a shipping law firm renowned for its clientele in the maritime industry.

Anna is also an LJMU alumna, having graduated with distinction from the MSc Maritime Operations Management programme in 2017. She has been lecturing with LJMU since 2019.

All About Shipping’s list of ‘100 Top Women in the Shipping Industry for 2023’ recognises the contributions of women across all sectors of the shipping industry, championing inclusivity across maritime businesses and organisations.

“From the 2019 inaugural allaboutshipping.co.uk list until today, it is a great honour for me to note my name featured amongst other phenomenal women of the shipping industry,” said Anna.

“This year’s list is even more special to me, as it is the first time that another wonderful woman in maritime from the Propeller Club Liverpool is featured.

“Ms Holly Bibby, the marketing manager at KVH Industries UK is one of the club’s ambassadors, a role I also undertake for the club.

“It is a great privilege for me to be surrounded both at work and in life by so many prestigious women in maritime and I proudly wave my two flags – Greek and British – in this list. You are all a true inspiration to me, well done.”
