Partner Joins Firm’s Nationally Renowned Shipping & Transport Practice

We’re delighted to announce that Gavin Farquhar has joined Andrew Jackson’s nationally renowned shipping & transport practice as a partner.

Gavin – who is dual Scottish and English law qualified – has over 30 years’ broad experience acting nationally and internationally for a range of businesses operating in the marine and shipping industry, particularly in the energy field. His expertise includes charterparties, the sale and purchase of vessels, vessel construction, as well as floating production storage and offloading vessel service agreements.

Having been involved in shipping work since the inception of the offshore oil industry to the UK, Gavin has acted for numerous developers of – and vessel suppliers to – offshore wind projects, oil field operators and supply companies, commercial fishing businesses, ferry companies, port authorities and multipurpose ship charterers and owners.

Gavin has a wealth of specialist experience around the fishing and hydrocarbons industries in the Falkland Islands, along with advising businesses based in Ireland, West Africa and the Middle East, especially in relation to vessel purchases. Shipbuilding contracts and charterparties for vessels destined for work on Offshore Wind projects, including vessels with hybrid engines, have been an area of significant growth recently.

Gavin said: – “I am delighted to be joining a team with such an enviable and longstanding  reputation in the maritime sector.  I very much look forward to helping develop the practice  in the areas I have focused on, especially in the energy sector.”

Dominic Ward, senior partner and head of the firm’s shipping & transport practice, added: – ” We have had cases on with Gavin in the past, particularly in relation to the Falkland Islands, and have first hand knowledge of his valuable experience and expertise.”

“We are delighted to welcome Gavin to Andrew Jackson; I know that he will be a valuable addition to our team and help to ensure we continue to deliver the highest standards of client service.”
