Keaney joins Hill Dickinson’s shipping team

Oct 21 2016


International law firm Hill Dickinson has strengthened its London shipping team with the arrival of Master Mariner Donal Keaney.

This brings the total number of Master Mariners at the law firm to six.

Keaney is currently studying to become admitted as a solicitor and joins Hill Dickinson from a varied seagoing, commercial and legal background. He recently spent three years with a Hong Kong legal practice, where he worked on a varied case load of both wet and dry matters, including attendances and casualty investigations on site.

A member of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, he previously worked as an offshore broker for Clarksons. He has also worked in shipmanagement, in both technical and marine & safety roles and has lectured in coastal navigation and COLREGS at Liverpool John Moores University.

Maria Pittordis, Hill Dickinson’s head of marine, trade and energy group, said, “Donal’s appointment greatly enhances Hill Dickinson’s casualty response capability, which now stands at eight mariners, including six Master Mariners across the London, Singapore and Hong Kong offices, providing the firm with one of the strongest teams in the industry.”
