South Coast: Marine expert Louise Fuller joins Blake Morgan

Leading law firm Blake Morgan has appointed marine law specialist Louise Fuller as a partner in the firm’s south coast litigation team.

Fuller joins from Lester Aldridge and was previously with Shoosmiths and Hill Dickinson. She is a member of the British Marine Federation and has served as a non-executive director there for two years, bringing considerable experience to the Blake Morgan team. She is recommended in the prestigious Legal 500 UK 2019 and is ranked in Chambers and Partners High Net Worth 2019, both considerable accolades.

Fuller will primarily work across the south coast and will advise on a wide range of marine matters, including sales and purchases, new builds, refits and commercial contracts, as well as disputes relating to breach of contract, collisions, salvage and insurance policy disputes. She has also been at the forefront of working with insurers and owners to meet their obligations under the Maritime Labour Convention.

Mike Wilson, Blake Morgan’s managing partner, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Louise to the team. She brings a wealth of experience to the firm and will be instrumental in strengthening our litigation offering – particularly in the marine sector. I look forward to working with her to further build on our excellent reputation across the south coast.”
