Philippa has a strong background in commercial shipping, with a focus on charterparty and other contractual disputes, and has advised many international, high-profile companies on a wide range of issues. Philippa also now works closely with the leisure marine and superyacht sectors, providing advice on contentious, non-contentious and regulatory matters.
