Darryl is a partner in the marine, trade and energy team in the London office and a key member of the emergency response team. He is one of the few shipping lawyers who specialise in both ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ work from collisions, salvage, groundings, total losses, fires and piracy through to charterparty disputes and claims arising under bills of lading.
Based in Norway for one year and in Singapore for five years, Darryl receives instructions from salvors, container lines, dry bulk and tanker owners as well as charterers, traders, P&I clubs and other insurers. He is a supporting member of the LMAA, a member of the Baltic Exchange, and a supporting member of the Association of Average Adjusters. He is also the firm’s representative on the Admiralty Solicitors Group.
Chambers & Partners sources say that Darryl has a “very user-friendly approach – he does not over-complicate things with legal jargon”, and that he is "very commercial and thinks outside the box... an inventive thinker.”
