She said: “I am extremely pleased on a personal level since it seemed that a fair amount of research had been carried out on each individual nominee and it was a very personal award. However, I am even more satisfied by the fact that among the recipients made up of established lady lawyers from the best and finest law firms in Europe the award for shipping and maritime went to a recipient from Malta which further enhances and reaffirms Malta’s important place in the world of shipping and maritime affairs today.”
She added: “Malta today is no longer a follower but a recognised leader in maritime affairs.”
Other award winners included Nathalie Hobbs from Linklaters – Best in Banking and Finance, Ruth Fox from Slaughter and May – Best in Financial Regulation, Sarah Murphy from Freshfields – Best in Capital Markets and Penelope Warne from Cameron McKenna – Best in Energy.
