Gold Sponsors
Norton Rose Fulbright
Norton Rose Fulbright is delighted to continue our association with LISW in 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic made us think more deeply about how we go about our business so it could not be a better time to share perspectives and ideas and to re- examine the challenges and opportunities. ‘Driving growth and recovery in a disrupted world’ is this year’s guiding theme and the events we are involved in support that theme. These events include discussions on: how the next generation of low to zero carbon emitting vessels will be  nanced; the implications of shipping being brought into the EU’s emissions trading system; the attractiveness of the stock market for shipping IPOs; and how to promote further diversity and inclusion. Harnessing innovation is vital and in the UK Chamber of Shipping’s Making Waves  lm created for LISW, we talk about both the innovation in  nancial products and the use of AI in shipping’s journey to decarbonise.
Shipping is an important part of our practice. We pride ourselves on being a thought leader and hold multiple tier 1 rankings in the leading legal directories for our work. Operating from over 50 of ces worldwide, the experience and size of our shipping team makes us quali ed to handle all shipping and offshore related matters. Increasingly this experience is combined with the skills of specialist technology lawyers and consultants throughout our  rm to advise on the impact of developments including blockchain, AI and the increasing digitalization of shipping together with environmental, social and governance issues including sanctions and cyber risk. Our clients are involved in all aspects of shipping, and include owners, operators and charterers, banks, funds, lessors, insurers and ports together with new participants seeking to be part of the shipping’s exciting developments. Our viewpoint is global, commercial, pragmatic and innovative which allows us to bring huge experience to any shipping issue.
