McApline joins Ince as a partner within the global marine team and will take on the role of global head of marine projects and finance.
Latest appointment sees a continued strengthening of Ince’s presence in the shipping world, having lost a number of key lawyers in the sector in recent years. Recently well-renown maritime lawyer Julian Clark joined the firm as senior partner. A team of 10 from the specialist shipping law firm Bentleys, Stokes and Lowless also joined Ince in London earlier this year.
Adrian Biles, chief executive of The Ince Group said: “Ince is committed to maintaining the best global shipping team in the market. Stuart is a hugely experienced and respected lawyer, who has dedicated decades of his life to the maritime and energy industries.”
Speaking on his new role, Stuart McAlpine said: “Ince’s hard fought reputation in the sector is renowned and demonstrates the high quality of its lawyers. I look forward to working as part of an industry leading team and utilising my experience to help the firm prosper.”
