Campbell Johnson Clark (CJC) has appointed two new Directors, following the promotion of London-based Senior Associates Duncan Ealand and James Clayton with effect from May 1, 2020. 

Both bring considerable insight to their new roles and exemplify the firm’s readiness to promote young talent from within. The promotions expand and develop the firm’s core business areas in dry and wet shipping disputes and in transactional work.

Duncan Ealand has been a solicitor with CJC for seven and a half years, mostly spent as a Senior Associate, and has a background in both wet and dry litigation across a broad range of P&I and FD&D work. His expertise has been sought out for disputes under time/voyage charter parties, contracts of affreightment and bills of lading, as well as for marine insurance issues including collisions, groundings, salvage and pollution. Ealand has experience of all aspects of commercial arbitration and High Court matters in a Maritime law context.

Specializing in transactional, corporate and ship finance law, James Clayton takes up a role as Director after nearly five years as a Senior Associate with CJC. Having advised on ship financing, restructuring, sale & purchase, construction and general commercial shipping contracts, Clayton also has experience in offshore O&G transactions, leasing, ECA-backed products, securities and corporate finance. In addition, he provided in-house Legal Counsel for the world’s largest independent pool and commercial management company.
