Oslo: Susanne Munch Thore, managing partner at Norway’s Wikborg Rein, speaks today to our new sister site, Maritime CEO. In her interview, Thore spent much time on the growing Chinese market for Wikborg Rein, the world’s largest non-UK/US shipping and offshore law firm.
For the first time more than 50% of Wikborg Rein’s China revenues came from local clients last year. The company has seen 80% revenue growth from China over the last two years. To this end, Geir Sviggum has been appointed as international managing partner based in Shanghai.
The slump in shipping has made owners seek greater commercial flexibility in their legal dealings, Thore told Maritime CEO. For the full interview, click HERE. [14/02/13]
