More about Marco

Marco advises and represents a wide variety of international clients in shipping, yachting and international trade and commodities disputes before the English national courts and in international arbitral proceedings. His expertise in shipping matters includes the sale and purchase of ships, charterparties and bills of lading, pool agreements, the carriage of goods by sea and ship management, as well as collisions and piracy.

Marco is also active in a full range of international trade and commodities matters, and is particularly specialized in the sale of petroleum products and related hedging transactions.

Being an Italian national, Marco also has a good knowledge of the Italian shipping and trade markets and regularly advises Italian clients.

Marco is regularly recognized for his expertise in shipping and trade. Three of his successes before the Commercial Court and the Court of Appeal are of significance in the international trade and shipping arena. Clients state that Marco is "an extremely experienced litigator who has a sensible and commercial approach to any issue" (Chambers & Partners Global 2020), “excellent on shipping work” and "very up to date with maritime law” (Chambers & Partners Global 2019).
