Avoid The Storm Ahead

Although rooted in the shipping traditions of the city of London, HCO is much more than a shipping law firm. We regularly handle international commercial arbitration and dispute resolution in a wide range of industry sectors including off and on shore energy, the international supply of goods and services, insurance, construction, engineering, mining, and telecommunications, aviation, banking, as well as shareholder and joint venture disputes and other commercial activity.  Our experience extends to LCIA and ICC, and SIAC arbitrations held in London and elsewhere.


Our strength is the tenacity, creativity and intellect of our team.

We are committed in all we do on behalf of clients and deliver results on a regular basis where others may have failed as a result of the intellect and creativity of our lawyers. 


We have experience in asset recovery, cases involving complex fraud, deceit, and conspiracy to defraud, piercing the corporate veil as well as obtaining and defending freezing injunctions globally.


We are renowned for putting together teams of lawyers and other experts and professionals from all over the world so as to effectively manage and handle matters involving multi jurisdictional litigation and arbitration cost effectively and successfully. The Firm has close associations with lawyers in the major commercial centres around the globe, as well as access to a worldwide network of lawyers and industry contacts. It is particularly active in the Russian, Italian, Greek, Indian and Far Eastern markets.
