Ince & Co boosts Monaco team by relocating Cooper and Pattard

Partner Kevin Cooper and senior associate Estelle Pattard have relocated to Ince & Co’s Monaco office to meet the demands of shipping, yacht, offshore energy and international trade clients in Monaco, the Mediterranean and West African regions.

Cooper and Pattard join the team from Ince’s London office, where they have advised on shipping, marine pollution, energy, international trade, international commercial disputes and anti-corruption/fraud issues.

Over the years, Cooper has worked in both the firm’s London and Shanghai offices and his experience covers shipping, yachts, marine insurance and offshore and international trade law.

Having previously served at sea in the British Navy, his practice includes handling marine and offshore casualties and he also advises shipping companies and insurers with worldwide operations on anti-corruption policies and procedures.

Pattard advises on a range of commercial international trade and shipping disputes covering charterparties, cargo claims, ship sale and purchase, shipbuilding contracts and yachting.

She also covers marine pollution from ships and offshore energy work and is familiar with fraud issues.
