Legal firm Hill Dickinson has appointed partner Siiri Duddington to join its expanding shipping team. Formerly a partner at Campbell Johnston Clark (CJC), Ms Duddington spent six years at the firm advising on a wide range of dry shipping, trade and insurance litigation, acting principally for owners, charterers, P&I clubs, traders and insurers.
She has extensive experience in commercial contracts disputes involving charterparty, bill of lading, MOA, COA, pooling agreements, marine insurance and sale contracts, as well as shipbuilding and rig disputes. She is regularly involved in running large-scale litigation and arbitration, often with multi-jurisdictional issues. Ms Duddington has particular expertise in insurance coverage disputes, largely acting for P&I clubs and insurers.
Duddington will be based in the firm’s Broadgate Tower, London office, joining former colleague Julian Clark, who was appointed Hill Dickinson’s global head of shipping last year.
