Davies Johnson’s Danella Wilmshurst has been recognised by legal peers and industry experts as a leader in the field of Shipping & Maritime Law.
Danella, a Director of the firm, was recently named in Best Lawyers Australia for her work in this area.
Best Lawyers’ methodology is based entirely on peer review and is designed to capture the consensus of opinion among leading lawyers, about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical and legal practice areas.
If that was not enough, Danella was also listed in “Who’s Who Legal: Transport 2017”. Unlike Best Lawyers, the Who’s Who listing is based on extensive research into the opinions of law firm clients and transport experts.
For Danella to receive this recognition from both her peers and the industry as a whole, is a fantastic achievement.
Danella has been advising the shipping and insurance industry on maritime and transport law for over twenty years, having been a partner at two of Australia’s leading maritime and transport firms. An expert on wet and dry shipping, freight forwarding and logistics, transport contracts and transactional work, Danella is a Director of the Maritime Law Association of Australia and New Zealand and a Member of the Australian Federation of International Forwarders. She has taken several complex cases through litigation or arbitration, ranging from charter party disputes to oil pollution, and has an international reputation for her expertise and sound guidance to the industry.
