Clyde & Co partner Irvine Marr has relocated to the firm’s London office from its Mena operations, where he was the head of shipping and international trade.
“Irvine will play a key role in connecting the firm’s UK and Middle East offices, which will further enhance its leading marine, trade and commodities practice,” reads a statement issued by the company.

Christopher Jobson is set to take up Marr’s previous role in Mena.

Marr has been a partner with Clyde & Co since 2002 and was in Dubai since 2009. His new focus in the UK will be on marine, trade and commodities. He will continue to advise his extensive client base of major oil traders, steel traders, state-owned charterers and first-class ship-owners from the London office.

Jobson has been advising on maritime law since 1988. His clients include regional and international energy companies, financial institutions, P&I clubs, ship owners and charterers and logistics organisations.

Clyde & Co chairman Michael Payton comments on the moves: “Clyde & Co has a truly international client base and thorough understanding of marine and trade clients’ global operations. The global spread of our marine expertise mirrors our clients’ operations. We see Irvine’s relocation as an opportunity to further enhance the firm’s marine, trade and commodities offering.”
