Markella Papadopoulou

Dual-qualified Solicitor

Markella is a Greek qualified lawyer who qualified as a Solicitor in February 2024 after completing the Solicitors Qualifying Exams.

Having obtained a Masters in Shipping Law at Cardiff University, in 2021 Markella joined the marine insurance team of another law firm and since then she has gained broad experience in advising clients in relation to contentious marine insurance disputes.

More specifically, Markella regularly deals with subrogated recoveries and uninsured losses claims on behalf of insurers and their policy holders. Her caseload mainly consists of contractual claims (i.e. against goods and services suppliers, surveyors or private yacht owners), claims in negligence, in bailment and collision claims (racing and non-racing).

Further, Markella has completed a secondment in the compliance department of an insurer during which she gained valuable exposure to the sanctions regime applicable to the UK/UN/US.

Following her qualification, Markella has also been assisting our wider shipping team with a broad range of contentious matters, including charterparty disputes and cargo claims.

Outside of work, Markella loves being active and playing all kinds of sports, including tennis, football and long-distance running but she can get way too competitive sometimes!

Markella is based at our London office.
