I have worked with Linda on a number of complex legal disputes and issues that are important to us. She advises us on a wide breadth of legal issues on shipping and logistics issues. She is always extremely responsive and creative which as a business we appreciate. She gives us pragmatic and commercial options and valuable insight on issues, which are often complex and time sensitive. It is a real pleasure working with her.Close quote

Linda acts for clients all over the world and has an excellent understanding of trade issues which arise out of the carriage of goods by ship, air and land. It is common to find lawyers specialised in one of these fields but rarer to find a lawyer who fully appreciates the entire trade chain. She offers a pragmatic and incisive view to try and get issues and disputes resolved as cost-effectively as possible.
