People August 7, 2017

The Hong Kong office of Norton Rose Fulbright is delighted to welcome partner and master mariner Dr Peter Glover, who has relocated from the firm’s London office.

Peter is a disputes lawyer who specialises in shipping, trade and marine insurance  With extensive experience acting on international arbitrations and mediations, Peter has advised several Asian and other multinational trading companies, shipowners, charterers, banks and insurers in all aspects of dispute resolution involving trade, commercial shipping, admiralty, salvage, pollution, investigations, marine insurance, risk management and regulatory compliance. He has previously acted on several Asia-related disputes including that of a ship collision in Greater China, tanker charter party disputes for major Japanese trading houses, arrests of ships for Japanese banks, and shortage and contamination claims for various Hong Kong owners.

Prior to private practice, Peter served at sea for 11 years on oil major tankers, and later as a Fleet Safety Officer, and has expertise in all aspects of tanker operations, claims management and incident response.

Peter joined the firm in 2009 and made partner in London in 2017. He is Vice Chairman of the Intertanko Documentary Committee, a visiting lecturer at the City of London Cass Business School in marine insurance, a supporting member of the LMAA, a member of the Association of Average Adjusters and a member of the Baltic Exchange.

Norton Rose Fulbright global head of transport Harry Theochari said: “Asia is of fundamental importance to the global shipping industry and China will likely become the world’s leading maritime power in less than a decade. Peter’s arrival in Hong Kong further extends the market-leading services we offer to clients in the region as the shipping industry moves east.

Deirdre Walker, Norton Rose Fulbright head of dispute resolution and litigation for Europe, Middle East and Asia, commented: “Peter is an exceptionally talented litigator with a deep understanding of the issues that affect the shipping sector worldwide. He is a tremendous asset to our team and will undoubtedly drive forward our contentious offering in Asia.
