Latham & Watkins has advised Epiris on the acquisition of Inchcape Shipping Services (“ISS”), a global provider of maritime services to ship owners, operators and charterers.

ISS’s port agency division is present in more than 85% of the world’s ports where it handles all aspects of a port call – from arranging pilots, tugboats and mooring, to loading, unloading, clearing and forwarding freight, to resupplying, refuelling and crewing – for cargo, passenger and naval vessels. ISS’s marine services division provides spare parts and other products and services required by vessels during a port call.

The Latham team was led by London corporate partner Paul Dolman, with London corporate associates Edward Coates and Becky Eaton.
