The leading international maritime law firm Ince & Co opened its Monaco office on 01 August 2011. The firm has been granted a licence to practise English law as Ince & Co Monaco SARL in matters relating to shipping and energy in the Principality.
Welcoming the firm to the Principality, the President of the Monaco Chamber of Shipping, Mr Manolo Veladini, said: “We are delighted to have Ince & Co here in Monaco and look forward to their support and association with the Chamber of Shipping. Ince & Co opening an office in Monaco demonstrates to the shipping and offshore industries that we are totally committed in our ambition to become a leading centre of maritime and offshore services.”
The office provides proximity to many of the firm’s key shipping, international trade, offshore energy and yachting clients, enabling Ince’s Monaco team to deliver to them an unrivalled level of service. Partner Ian Cranston, who has advised clients in the region for over 20 years, heads up the office. He is joined by an English qualified solicitor, Ruth Monahan, who trained with the firm in London.
Ian Cranston, head of the Ince’s Monaco and Italy teams, said “I look forward to strengthening our association with the Chamber of Shipping. I’m very pleased our Monaco office is up and running and that our clients are able to benefit from an enhanced level of service providing “on the doorstep” advice.”
