I. Valmas has just been admitted to Plymouth University and is currently studying and researching towards a MSc in Shipping via part-time Distance Learning. Continuous education has been at the forefront of our firm's principles and focus since the beginning. Our vision is to strengthen our office's presence in the services sector of the Shipping Industry by:
1. gaining a broad and deep understanding of the Shipping Industry's functions and workings (that is by studying Shipping beyond a mere study and interpretation of legal rules) and 2. applying this knowledge to our existing strong background in International Business and Trade Law.
During the course of this study, several articles and essays related to Shipping will be released from our blog.
