Andrew Chamberlain, HFW

Andrew Chamberlain is a partner at HFW and is the global head of admiralty and crisis management. He is a former Royal Navy officer and specialises in wet shipping cases, including salvage and wreck removal (acting for salvors as well as owners and their underwriters), collisions, fire and explosion, total loss and wreck removal. He also advises on both civil and criminal pollution liabilities, marine insurance coverage disputes and the full range of other shipping-related commercial and contractual disputes.

Andrew served at sea with the Royal Navy and had a stint with the Hong Kong Squadron before qualifying as a lawyer. As a partner at HFW since 2003, he has been heavily involved in many of the largest casualties of recent years, including MSC Napoli (2007), MSC Chitra (2010), Costa Concordia (2012), Smart (2013), Norman Atlantic (2014), Eastern Amber and Maersk Seoul (2015), Burgos (2016) and Sanchi and Maersk Honam (both 2018 and ongoing).

Andrew lectures regularly on salvage, wreck removal and casualty response and is an acknowledged expert in the field. He has been invited to be chairman of the Lloyd’s Salvage and Wreck Removal conference in London (the leading global industry event) every year since 2013. He is consistently recommended in Chambers (‘Andrew Chamberlain is highly respected in ship casualty work’, Chambers 2022) and The Legal 500 for his work on shipping and casualty matters, with one source commenting, ‘What he doesn’t know about shipping isn’t worth knowing’ (Chambers 2016).

Holly Colaço, HFW

Holly Colaço is responsible for knowledge management for the HFW shipping group. She produces a variety of client publications, provides training both to clients and to lawyers within the firm and has advised clients on their own knowledge management systems.

Before moving into her professional support lawyer role, Holly practised as a senior shipping litigator, advising on a wide variety of multi-jurisdictional and high-value shipping disputes. Her cases concerned both wet and dry shipping matters, including charter party and bill of lading disputes, collisions, groundings, salvage, and unsafe port claims. She has also advised on marine insurance litigation and has undertaken a number of related secondments with International Group of P&I Club members, handling a wide variety of P&I and defence claims, and with a major London insurer.

She has experience of English Commercial and Admiralty Court proceedings, and international arbitration, including LCIA, ICC and LMAA.

Richard Neylon, HFW

Richard Neylon is a partner at HFW and acts for a range of shipowners, charterers and insurers, in wet and dry shipping disputes. A large proportion of Richard’s work involves resolving disputes arising from marine casualties and he has been involved in many recent high-profile incidents. He has particular experience of collisions, fires and explosions, salvage, piracy, capture and seizure, groundings and unsafe port claims – often involving complex multi-jurisdictional litigation and arbitration. Although he works in the admiralty and crisis management department, the complexity of modern marine casualties necessarily involves him in a mixture of wet and dry work.

Richard also handles major incidents and disputes for liability, war, kidnap and ransom, cyber and special risks underwriters and their assureds. He has particular expertise in managing and resolving incidents in hostile environments. He has played a central role in co-coordinating and resolving more than 100 hijacking and kidnapping cases in the past 10 years. He also regularly deals with unlawful detentions, extortions, drug seizures and similar complex problems to which companies that operate globally can become exposed.

He has addressed various governments, law enforcement agencies, and government and non-governmental organisations on industry’s response to incidents of this nature, and has developed a network of contacts in government, the military, private military, financial institutions and intelligence agencies.

Richard lectures regularly in the United Kingdom and internationally on crisis response, shipping and insurance topics, and has contributed articles to various publications.
