Ince & Co

Ince & Co are an international commercial law firm that serves its global client base from offices across Asia, Europe and the Middle East. We provide the best quality legal advice and strategic guidance to clients based in four core sectors: Transport (including Shipping, Aviation and Yachts & Superyachts), Trade, Energy & Infrastructure and Insurance. By combining our sector expertise, legal knowledge and market experience, we deliver services in support of our clients’ most complex disputes, transactions and projects.

With over 140 years of experience, we’re one of the oldest law firms in the City. Within our core sectors we have a broad range of expertise, including EU law, competition and regulation, commercial disputes, insolvency and corporate recovery, emergency response, ports and maritime infrastructure. Our corporate and finance practice has grown significantly in recent years, and the firm has developed a strong transactional business to complement our dispute resolution work. Clients range from insurers, brokers and banks to oil and shipping companies, airlines, aircraft manufacturers, entrepreneurs and major international trading groups. We are an ever growing firm, now boasting 13 offices worldwide, with our most recent office opening in Marseille in February 2017. Our number of people stands at over 500, including over 100 partners and more than 160 lawyers worldwide. The firm is continuing to develop, with a 16% year-on-year increase in turnover in 2016/17 and 100% of our trainees being offered an NQ position on qualification. 

Our success is built upon always taking a collaborative and innovative approach by looking for new ways to apply legal strategies and create new law. While our international presence and world leading reputation was initially built on shipping and insurance, we have successfully explored new territory and established our expertise across a number of specific industries. 

Ince regularly hosts client events throughout the year in our dedicated client suites, including annual shipping and insurance parties; Ince also hosts events internally, including the annual black tie May Ball and monthly ‘Ince drinks’, which is a great opportunity to get to know people from across the firm. We have also invested heavily in IT and infrastructure, supporting agile working and relocating to modern offices in London and Hong Kong, with employees now working from Surface Pro 4s. 

Ince sees things differently with around 70% of our partners having trained with us. We not only regard our trainees as future solicitors and potential partners, but our training programme is different too. With us you’ll get involved in real legal work from day one, with flexibility to work across different departments and retain the majority of your cases as you progress through your training.
