Mark Lakin named in Seatrade Maritime Middle East's inaugural '20 under 40' list


Stephenson Harwood Dubai-based partner Mark Lakin has been included in Seatrade Maritime Middle East's inaugural '20 under 40 ' list.

The list celebrates the top 20 maritime industry professionals under the age of 40 who have demonstrated leadership, ambition and commitment to the industry within the Middle East region. The top 20 were announced at an award ceremony, which was supported by the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure as part of UAE Maritime Week.

“I am thrilled that Mark has been recognised in this list, as a leader who is spearheading the development of maritime markets in the Middle East, said Alex Davis, partner and global head of marine and international trade at Stephenson Harwood. "This recognition also demonstrates the strength and depth of talent that our firm holds in both the Middle East maritime market, and globally.” 

Lakin is an English qualified partner and solicitor advocate, who has more than 10 years of experience advising clients within the shipping sector. His clients range from independent trading and shipping companies based in the UAE to large international commodities houses based in London and Geneva.

"I'm really pleased to have my work recognised in this way, and to be considered among the top maritime professionals within the region," said Mark Lakin, partner, Stephenson Harwood. "I want to congratulate the other recipients of this accolade, many of whom are clients or contacts of the firm, and whom I know to be among the best in the business."
