More about Julian

Julian is a partner based in our Shanghai office. As well as being a solicitor, Julian is also a master mariner with over twelve years experience at sea on general cargo/container, tankers (VLCC, Product, North Sea Shuttle (DP2) and LNG), gas carriers and offshore dive support/sub-sea construction vessels (DP3).

Julian is named in the Legal 500 Asia Pacific Guide 2019 for Shipping in China. Having practiced in PRC for over 16 years, Julian has a sound understanding of the legal landscape there. His practice covers all aspects of shipping - both contentious and non-contentious, as well as trade and energy matters. His clients include PRC State Owned Companies, PRC banks and leasing companies, large PRC steel mills, PRC oil majors as well as traders, owners and charterers.




We are working with clients across our international network to help them minimise the impact of COVID-19 on their business and to prepare for what's next. To find out more, visit our dedicated Covid-19 hub.


We have been in Shanghai for more than 20 years, and in 2016 became only the second international law firm to secure a local association under the Shanghai FTZ rules, with Chinese firm Wintell & Co.

Our Shanghai team work seamlessly with our Hong Kong office, creating a Greater China practice of more than 85 lawyers, who advise clients on contentious and non-contentious matters across the region.
