Zoe also trained in two international law firms, specialising in maritime law, before qualifying as a Lawyer in 2014 and being admitted to the French Bar.
She joined the trade and transport team at Hesketh Henry in March 2018 and advises on all aspects of maritime law, including contentious and transactional matters.
