HFW has expanded its shipping practice in Singapore with the hire of master marine Mark Myles from Reed Smith.

The addition of Myles, who is also a qualified lawyer, makes it HFW’s third hire from Reed Smith this year, after Peter Zaman and Dan Perera.  

Myles focuses on investigating and handling major collisions, groundings, salvage, total loss and cargo disputes, and also advising clients on international trade, marine insurance, charterparty, admiralty and maritime matters, including ship management and vetting.

Last year, HFW hired mariner Joel Cockerell in Singapore. Cockerell earlier spent 12 years in the Royal Australian Navy.
