Sally-Ann has been advising clients in the shipping industry for over 25 years on the real time problems that impact on their business.
She deals with disputes arising out of all types of shipping and trading contracts, such as charterparty, bill of lading, sale and purchase, and shipbuilding, as well as sale contracts and worldwide logistics issues. She has a diverse practice, ranging from highly technical shipbuilding disputes and cargo claims (including the carriage of oil and gas products, dry bulk cargoes and containers, as well as pharmaceutical products) to simple defence issues. She is well used to dealing with complex multi-contractual issues.
Sally-Ann is co-managing partner of Reed Smith's Athens office and has a focus on the Greek, Indian and Middle Eastern markets. She has a particular interest in future-proofing the shipping industry and has been advising recently on COVID-19 related issues, as well as floating storage, GDPR and blockchain.
