Nico Zurcher joins our London office

We are pleased to welcome Nico to our London office.

Nico began his career working in a leading international environmental consultancy where he was involved in a number of major government marine projects in Hong Kong, as well as offshore oil and gas, and mining projects around Asia.

Prior to joining Hawkins, he worked for Hannaford Forensic Services (HFS-Asia) in Hong Kong, where he worked as a fire and explosion investigator and as a consulting scientist on the carriage of marine bulk cargoes.

Nico has written technical advice notes for marine P&I clubs and regularly gives presentations on loss prevention to law firms, P&I clubs and loss adjusters. He has prepared expert witness reports for use in civil litigation and has appeared in court in Thailand, and in front of an arbitration tribunal in London.

Nico will help bolster our growing International and Shipping Incidents team and will continue to investigate a broad range of land-based and marine incidents, both domestically and internationally. He is also a member of our contamination team.
