More about Kirsten

Kirsten specialises in international commercial dispute resolution, with a focus on advising clients acting in the shipping, logistics and marine insurance sectors. She acts for a range of ship owners, charterers, logistics companies and insurers involved in disputes arising from charterparties, bills of lading, collisions, groundings, explosions, “off-spec” bunkers, fatalities at sea and general average. Her work often involves complex multi-jurisdictional litigation and arbitration.

As part of her non-contentious practice, Kirsten has delivered training to a large oil major on the legal and practical implications of importing and exporting waste substances to and from the EU.

Kirsten spent six months in HFW's Shanghai office where she acted on a range of contentious “wet” and “dry” shipping matters. She has also spent time in HFW's regulatory, insurance and commodities departments.

Kirsten is qualified in England and Wales.

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.


The London office is the firm's largest, with over 250 lawyers.

It offers the full range of services that HFW provides globally, with partners from the London office working closely with all the other HFW offices, as well as in many jurisdictions around the world. HFW moved to its current premises in September 2008, having previously been in nearby Lloyds Avenue for almost 100 years.
