A renowned former shipbroker, he has almost 50 years' experience in the shipping industry, specialising in newbuilding and sale and purchase broking.

Based in Singapore since 1982, Chris has a wealth of knowledge of the diverse Asian markets and is a well-known figure in the Singapore shipping community in particular.

Additionally, Chris's expertise with past and current freight rates and his ability to undertake valuation work offers valuable insight that complements our legal offering to our clients operating in the maritime industry.
