Today I’m delighted to be joined by Cusack and Co, an innovative maritime law firm who are building a much-needed space for likeminded individuals and companies to do law differently.
As top carriers continue to merge, shippers need personalised ocean carriage contracts to protect their businesses, now more than ever. So Cusack and Co, led by the dynamic and inimitable Alison Cusack, provide a range of both proactive and reactive services to help shippers compete and stay protected in a global market.
