She joins the firm from Clifford Chance where she was Head of the Asia Pacific Maritime and Offshore Group and is accompanied by senior associate Bernice Chia.

"When we launched our commodities and shipping group last year we set our sights on creating one of the premier practices in the market," said Steve Mahon, global managing partner - clients and strategy. "The team has gotten off to a fast start and Kate is another talented addition who will continue our growth in this area and complement other aspects of our global practice."

Sherrard specializes in the financing of maritime and offshore oil and gas assets.
