North P&I Club appoints directors to FD&D team

North P&I Club appoints directors to FD&D team

(Posted on 01/02/22)

North P&I Club have announced the appointments of Feirin McConville and Louise Ferrari as directors within its FD&D department, effective, 1 February 2022.

North P&I Club is a leading global marine insurer providing P&I, FD&D, war risks, hull and machinery, and ancillary insurance to over 240 million GT of owned and chartered tonnage.

Since joining North in 2012, Feirin has established herself as a leading FD&D expert in Asia and in Europe (with a particular focus on Norway). Feirin’s dedication to service and unrivalled knowledge of FD&D law and practice has earned her plaudits from all Members she works alongside and, more generally, from her colleagues at North and across the wider shipping industry. In her new position, Feirin will continue to consolidate and extend her role across the European and Americas team while supporting our Members in Asia.

Louise joined North in 2014, bringing with her considerable expertise from practising FD&D in top shipping law firms. Louise is a leading expert in the FD&D department, providing dedicated support to Members in Asia. Louise is also a leader in North’s learning and development activities, as well as managing our team of Legal Assistants. In her new role as director Louise will build on and expand her role in the Asia team, alongside delivering on North’s commitment to the continuing development of its people.

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of two highly valued and talented members of North as directors within the FD&D department,” says Paul Jennings, Chief Executive, North. “Feirin and Louise have considerable experience in their field and will continue to provide expert guidance to our global membership – as well as supporting the general leadership and development of our world-leading team of dedicated FD&D specialists.”

Katherine Birchall, Global Director (FD&D) said, “Feirin and Louise are outstanding FD&D lawyers and deliver the highest levels of quality FD&D advice to our membership. Their appointments reflect the strength in depth of our FD&D team, which is generally recognised as the leading team of dedicated FD&D specialists worldwide, supporting our Members to trade with confidence in changing and uncertain times. I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate them both and wish them every success in their new roles.”

The S&P Global ‘A’ rated Club is based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK with regional offices and subsidiaries in Australasia, China (Hong Kong and Shanghai), Greece, Ireland, Japan, Singapore and USA. North is a leading member of the International Group of P&I Clubs (IG), with over 12% of the IG’s owned tonnage. The 13 IG clubs provide liability cover for approximately 90% of the world’s ocean-going tonnage and, as a member of the IG, North protects and promotes the interests of the international shipping industry.
