Hill Dickinson sponsors London International Shipping Week 2015


London skylineHill Dickinson has announced it has become a proud sponsor of London International Shipping Week 2015 when leaders from every sector of the global shipping industry will descend on London for five days of influential meetings, seminars and functions, culminating in a high-level industry shipping conference and spectacular gala dinner.

Maria Pittordis, the partner who heads the marine, trade and energy business group, said: “The roots of maritime law can be traced as far back as 900 BC. So, as one of the country’s most historic shipping practices, it is only right for Hill Dickinson to support such a significant event in the modern industry’s calendar.”

Over 100 events are planned for London during the week with some UK regional events also being staged to highlight the strength and breadth of the UK’s maritime sector making LISW 2015 the ‘must attend’ event of the year.

Hill Dickinson will also be offering workshops and seminars in the key areas of casualty and commodities, which are expected to attract leading industry figures. The firm has a long connection with the London shipping community and this is reflected in the stellar line up of headline organisers which includes Shipping Innovation – a joint venture between Elaborate Communications and Petrospot – in association with Maritime UK partners The Baltic Exchange, Maritime London, and the UK Chamber of Shipping, and with TheCityUK, the independent promotional body for UK financial and professional services.
