He has a broad shipping practice encompassing both wet and dry shipping.

Principally, Rory specialises in charterparty and bills of lading disputes and has also been involved in notable large scale salvage, grounding and collision matters as well as marine insurance litigation.

Rory has also worked on a number of international maritime fraud cases involving bills of lading.
