International law firm Ince & Co celebrated five years of practice in Monaco last week with a celebratory event for clients and staff at The Monte Carlo Beach Hotel.
The team provides English law advice, with a particular focus on shipping, yachting, offshore energy, international trade, the carriage of goods by sea and aviation. The majority of the office’s clients are based in Monaco, Italy, France, Switzerland, the Mediterranean and West Africa.
In the five years since it opened, the Monaco office, led by Managing Partner Ian Cranston, who has been advising clients in the region for over 20 years, has grown from two fee-earners and one business support staff, to four permanent fee-earners, a regular trainee secondment from the firm’s London office and two business support staff. In January 2015, Ince & Co announced that its Monaco office was relocating to new premises within the Gildo Pastor Centre to accommodate this growth.
Ian Cranston took the opportunity to thank the office’s clients and congratulate the members of his team. He said: “Since our launch in August 2011, our Monaco office has more than doubled in size and continues to secure instructions on a number of high profile deals and cases for clients based around the world. I am proud of what we have achieved and attribute our ongoing success to the loyalty of our clients and the commitment of our team who have supported the firm over the past five years.”
