For Nick, as chair of the Reed Smith Global Shipping Group, in order to find a practical solution to any shipping matter, you must understand not just the client, but also the commercial environment that they are operating in. That means listening and understanding, and then trusting in his own ability as a lawyer to help a client towards an acceptable outcome. It is that mantra that is helping to drive Nick’s ambition to steer Reed Smith’s Shipping Group to be the number one global shipping practice.
