Eminent shipping and asset finance lawyer Harry Theochari, Chair of Maritime London and Senior Consultant at Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, as well as past Chair of Maritime UK, received his OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) at Windsor Castle on 28 February.
He said: “I am hugely honoured and so very humbled to have received this recognition. It is for “Services to the Maritime Industry”, so it was very appropriate, and an enormous pleasure for me and my family, that it was presented by HRH The Princess Royal, a great supporter and Patron of the Industry.
“I cannot in good conscience accept this great honour and recognition only for myself. Whatever I may have achieved or have been so generously credited with, would simply not have been possible without the tremendous support I have received from my family, from Government and my friends and colleagues at Maritime London, Maritime UK, and, of course, Norton Rose Fulbright LLP the law firm at which I have spent my entire career and which I have been so proud to serve.”
