Ince & Co has announced the appointment of Ian Fisher as a shipping and international trade partner in its Monaco office.
Having opened an office in the Gildo Pastor Center in the summer of 2011, Ince & Co provides English legal advice, with an emphasis on shipping, yachting, offshore energy, international trade and aviation.
Mr Fisher was previously a partner in the Singapore office of the Vietnamese law firm YKVN, having originally trained with Ince.
Ian Cranston, Managing Partner of Ince & Co’s Monaco location, said: “I worked closely with Ian on a number of high-profile cases before he left us for pastures new in 2005. I’m very pleased to welcome him back.
“Ian is a first rate operator and a great addition to our team. He has strong business development and legal skills and his ability to work well within a tight-knit team will be of major benefit to us and our clients.”
Mr Cranston additionally announced the promotion, with immediate effect, of Marco Crusafio to the position of co-gérant of the Monaco SARL, in recognition of his commitment and dedication to the Monaco office.
Jan Heuvels, International Senior Partner of Ince & Co, stated: “Ian’s recruitment and Marco’s promotion are recent examples of the investment that we continue to make in legal talent in our core sectors of transport, trade, energy and infrastructure and insurance.
Mr Heuvels added, “Shipping remains a key element of our firm’s transport sector group and since the start of 2017 we have also opened in Marseille, with the recruitment of Laurianne Ribes and Fabien D’Houssy, and have hired Thomas Schwenke and his team in Hamburg.”
