About Alex Hookway

Alex is part of the firm's Shipping Offshore practice. He has a broad range of contentious experience from the more traditional dry and wet shipping diet through to live casualty attendance, crisis management experience and more latterly disputes involving specialist offshore construction and service vessels such as FPSO's, drilling rigs, OSVs, DSVs and heavy-lift assets as well drafting and litigating the underlying EPC/EPCI/T & I contracts which underpin the projects.

Alex has been involved in some of the more recent high-profile marine and offshore casualties including Transocean Winner, Charlotte Maersk, MSC Flamina and MOL Comfort amongst others.
