We are pleased to announce the appointment of Yannis Litinas as partner in Simonsen Vogt Wiig, effective from January 2019.

Yannis Litinas joined our Oslo office as an Associate Partner in September 2017, within the firm’s Shipping and Energy department. Yannis is qualified as an English solicitor and has worked with international commercial law, shipping and energy in London and Athens, before moving to Oslo in 2009.
