Shipping and international trade team buoyed by new hire
Top 100 law firm Birketts has appointed Terry O’Regan as a legal director to the Shipping and International Trade team.
He joins Birketts’ Ipswich office, working with one of the three teams that form part of the law firm’s award winning Transport and Logistics team.
With the team recognised for the excellence of their work with both international and domestic clients at the Legal 500 UK Awards 2019, O’Regan’s 30 years of commercial knowledge make him well placed to bring further success.
With comprehensive arbitration experience in the energy, trade, marine and maritime law sectors gained in private practice and in-house roles, O’Regan’s impressive track record has also seen him selected as chair for Lloyd’s Maritime Academy, address the floor at the New York Maritime Association and become selected as one of only six accredited speakers on international trade to one of the world’s leading banks.
Having built a strong reputation acting for clients in highly complex, high value matters of international trade, shipping and insurance, O’Regan has extensive experience representing a broad range of traders, shippers and oil companies and will be a strong addition to Birketts’ growing group of specialists.
While based in Ipswich, O’Regan will support colleagues across Birketts’ other offices in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Norwich.
