Colin Biggers & Paisley has hired transportation lawyer and formerDLA Piper partner Andrew Tulloch.
“With over 30 years’ experience in trade and transportation law, Andrew brings great knowledge and experience of both maritime and aviation matters to the growing CBP Trade & Transport Group,” said CBP managing partner Dunstan de Souza.
Tulloch has acted for insurers, airlines, road carriers and those involved in supply chain and logistics, as well as the offshore energy sector.
He is chairman of the Victorian branch of the Aviation Law Association of Australia; a past member of the Federal Executive of the Maritime Law Association of Australia and New Zealand, and a founding member of both the Melbourne Marine Insurance Forum and Australian Aviation Insurance Forum.
Tulloch will work closely with senior CBP partner Stuart Hetherington, who was the first Australian and non-European to be appointed president of Comite Maritime International (CMI) – the body that has undertaken the preparatory and drafting work on many major international treaties in its 115-year history of seeking to unify maritime law. Hetherington was appointed CMI president in November last year.
“Aside from the opportunity to work alongside Stuart in Sydney, I am looking forward to being able to combine my practice with the existing trade and transport practices of Andrew Probert and Robert Tuck to develop a strong client offering in Melbourne,” said Tulloch.
