Geoffrey BruntonNote: What follows on this and other pages constitutes information on the firm as it existed immediately prior to 21st August 2012.
I was born in 1953 and live in Sevenoaks, Kent.
I read economics at the University of East Anglia before taking the legal professional exams and qualifying as a solicitor in 1980. Before moving into niche practice, I spent 6 years specialising in shipping and commodity trading matters in one of the large maritime law firms in London EC3.
In January 2000 I became a solicitor advocate and thus entitled to appear as an advocate in all civil courts in England and Wales.
I am also an accredited mediator.
My practice is primarily concerned with dispute resolution, including litigation and arbitration, although I also undertake some non-contentious work (including drafting contracts; drafting and advising on sale and purchase terms and conditions (international trade)) in the following areas:-
- Crude oil and oil products of all kinds
- Other dry commodities
- Charterparty disputes
- Unsafe port
- Cargo claims
- Ship sale and purchase
- Ship arrest
- Asset attachment (numerous jurisdictions)
- Professional negligence (solicitors, accountants, IFAs, surveyors)
- Commercial fraud
