Nick Shepherd is a Partner at Wikborg Rein's London office. He specialises in shipping, energy and marine insurance work. For many years he has worked with the Greek shipping market, representing several of the leading shipping groups. Having previously lived and worked in Greece for a total of 12 years (1994-99 and 2009-16), he has developed a detailed knowledge and understanding of that market.
