Daniel Martin

Solicitor, HFW
Daniel advises traders, shipowners, freight forwarders, insurers and brokers on a host of regulatory and compliance issues, including international trade sanctions, export controls, customs and anti-corruption legislation. He advises on all aspects of the EU and UK sanctions legislation, and he is also familiar with the application of US sanctions to non-US persons.
Daniel also advises clients on disputes arising from charterparties, sale contracts, bills of lading, marine insurance and logistics operations, and he uses that experience and expertise to provide detailed, practical advice which is tailored to clients in the commodities, shipping, logistics and marine insurance sectors.
As well as advice on dispute resolution, customs and regulatory compliance (including ways to engage effectively with HMRC and other regulators), he also advises on compliance procedures and controls which traders, shipowners, logistics companies, banks, insurers and brokers should adopt to minimise risk.
Acritas Star Lawyers describes Daniel as “Down to earth, commercially minded, understands my business and thinking outside the box.”

Practice notes

In the UK, the primary responsibility for administering the sanctions framework is taken by HM Treasury, in particular the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation. A number of other government departments also have involvement in the system of UK sanctions, including the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Insurers must negotiate a patchwork system of financial and trade sanctions.
