Holman Fenwick & Willan's Hong Kong office has strengthened its admiralty practice by appointing a new admiralty partner.
John Dillon is joining from Ince & Co, where he managed its admiralty practice in Hong Kong between 1987 and 1992, and in Singapore between 1996 and 2000.
Dillon has worked on a number of high-profile casualty cases involving collisions, groundings, total losses and pollution.
"John has been a much-respected opponent and I'm very pleased to welcome him to the Holmans team," says London admiralty senior partner James Gosling.
Senior partner Robert Wilson says: "While we continue our development as an international commercial firm, we maintain our commitment to being the number-one firm in shipping law worldwide. This addition to our admiralty and casualty team shows we are moving further ahead on this side of our practice."
