Lett lawyers want bigger share of shipping customers

The collapse of OW Bunker and the restructuring of Torm are just two of the reasons why Danish law firm Lett sees greater potential in the shipping industry. We need a bigger share of the market, Lett tells ShippingWatch.

In recent years, several companies in shipping have needed legal assistance. Take Torm for instance, which has gone through a comprehensive restructuring, or bunker company OW Bunker, which went bankrupt this fall resulting in legal consequences that are expected to last years. And the Danish dry bulk carrier Copenship, which early this year had to admit defeat as well.

These are all cases that the law firm Lett, based in the Danish cities of Copenhagen and Aarhus, has had a hand in or is still working with, and the need for consultancy in the transport sector - and not least shipping - will grow in coming years, according to Lett, where there is a desire to conquer a larger part of the market in the long term, the two partners Henrik Sjørslev and Per Vestergaard Pedersen, both of whom have significant experience in the shipping sector, tell ShippingWatch.
