My Expertise

My practice covers multi-jurisdictional litigation and arbitration in the marine, non-marine and reinsurance sectors and matters as diverse as professional indemnity and D&O risks, shareholder and complex contractual disputes.

Read more about me

I act for clients in the full range of commodities, shipping and commercial litigation involving, for example, port facilities, 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 have been recommended in successive editions of the major legal directories since 2007. 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 JMoss

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 transport and logistics sectors.
