Ince & Co's Monaco office opened in August 2011 to serve the growing needs of our clients based in the Principality and in France, Italy and Switzerland. Practising through Ince & Co Monaco SARL, we provide advice on English law matters arising out of client business activities throughout the world.
Ince & Co Monaco has rapidly earned a reputation as one of the leading English law practices in Monaco, and is ranked as a top tier firm by publications such as Chambers Europe. The office is led by Ian Cranston, who has advised clients in the region for over 20 years and who serves on the Board of Directors of the Monaco Chamber of Shipping and on the Board of the Propeller Club of the Port of Monaco. The office has four other lawyers who are collectively fluent in English, French and Italian and who possess a thorough knowledge of the Principality and international legal systems.
The office provides proximity to many of the firm’s key shipping, aviation, international commodity trading, energy and yachting clients, enabling the team to deliver an unrivalled level of service. We are also able to provide clients with legal support from, and contact with, the firm’s other global offices.
“The lawyers know what they do, they do it well and they have a laser focus. They are very responsive and understand all the commercial aspects of shipping.” Chambers & Partners Europe 2013
