Andrew Chamberlain is a partner at HFW and is the global head of admiralty and crisis management. He is a former Royal Navy officer and specialises in wet shipping cases, including salvage and wreck removal (acting for salvors as well as owners and their underwriters), collisions, fire and explosion, total loss and wreck removal.

He is consistently recommended in Chambers (‘Andrew Chamberlain is highly respected in ship casualty work’, Chambers 2022) and The Legal 500 for his work on shipping and casualty matters, with one source commenting, ‘What he doesn’t know about shipping isn’t worth knowing’ (Chambers 2016).
