Interlegal opened a representative office in London (UK). Its representative in London is Alberto Batini, who previously chaired Interlegal association office in Italy.
A representative office in London will facilitate more prompt and efficient Interlegal legal support both to Ukrainian clients in English courts and arbitrations and to British law firms with the clients in the Black and Caspian Sea basin.
Interlegal partner Arthur Nitsevych said: "In fact, Albero Batini not only represents Interlegal in London, but he is a voice of all the company’s clients making business in Transport, Shipping and International Trade governed by the English law system. Both GAFTA, FOSFA, LMAA arbitration rules and British court rules allow Interlegal experts to protect clients’ interests online. In some unique cases, our lawyers also participated directly in litigation and arbitration proceedings. However, when we found the opportunity to develop partnership with Alberto Batini and strengthen our arbitration practice, we did not hesitate to take advantage of this step".
Alberto's work experience is 27 years. Previously he cooperated with respected British firms Sinclair Roche & Temperley (now Stephenson Harwood) and Charles Taylor & Co. Alberto speaks English, Italian and Spanish
Alberto's key competencies are: maritime law, P&I and H&M insurance, ship arrest, international arbitration, transport and logistics, maritime cyber security.
Alberto Batini comments, "I am happy to start the new wave of business cooperation with Interlegal. We have known each other since 2005. We have assisted both each other and our clients for many times. Now we are moving towards our partnership development. I moved to London while we launched the next step of our relationship. I am pleased to become Interlegal representative in London. We will create additional value for Ukrainian and European customers due to the benefits of our British-Ukrainian synergy".
Launch of the representative office in London is the result of Interlegal regular work upon best service for the customers. For this purpose, offices in Varna, Istanbul, Batumi and Constanta have been opened earlier, jointly with developing cooperation with 29 associated offices in different countries.
Interlegal goal is to become a one-stop-shop for clients in Transport, Shipping and International Trade throughout the Black Sea region.
