My practice covers multi-jurisdictional litigation and arbitration in the marine, non-marine and reinsurance sectors and matters as diverse as professional indemnity risks, D&O risks and a variety of reinsurance and reinsurance run-off contracts.
I act for clients in the full range of shipping litigation involving tankers, liquid cargoes and metals and advise on contamination claims, sale of goods issues and cases arising from salvages. I also draft a range of contracts including Storage Agreements and Terminal Usage Agreements.
I am recommended in successive editions of the major legal directories. These publications describe me as "first rate" (The Legal 500, Insurance and Reinsurance), "maintaining a sterling international marine, commodity and insurance and reinsurance practice" (Chambers UK, Insurance and Reinsurance), “commercially minded” (The Legal 500, Shipping) and “a key player for commodity disputes” (The Legal 500: Finance: Physical Commodities).
Chambers Global 2015 recently said: 'Jonathan Moss is a "dynamic lawyer" who has a strong marine and shipping practice and is frequently involved in advising foreign insurers within the London market. One client described him as "incredibly knowledgeable, with a wealth of experience in marine and insurance law," while another praised him as being "helpful and insightful." He regularly handles French litigation matters and is bilingual.'
I am fluent in French and am listed counsel for the French Consulate in London.
As Head of DWF’s Transport sector, I specialise in working with companies involved in the shipping, aviation, rail, automotive and road and logistics sectors.
I am visiting lecturer in international insurance and international shipping law at Queen Mary, University of London.
The transport sector is key to Iran’s post sanctions gold rush
Iran is rich in commodities to trade, low in debt, in need of rejuvenation and updating and in need of creation of jobs. But with a ready-to-work and vast population at working age its transport sector is ripe for growth.
