Alberta is a 9 year PQE maritime lawyer specialising in non-contentious ship finance matters as well as in shipping dispute resolution. She works at the London office of Ince, a law firm with a heritage in shipping reaching back 150 years, which is now a “full service” firm with offices in various jurisdictions. Alberta’s areas of interest include ESG and the decarbonisation of the industry, and how this transition may be just and equitable.

Alberta attended the Zero Emissions Ship Technology Association (ZESTA)’s ShipZero event in Glasgow during COP26, promoting rapid and large-scale uptake of Zero Emissions Ship Technology. Alberta is excited to see that this prompted a strategic partnership between Ince and ZESTA, purporting to accelerate the transition to true zero-emissions shipping ahead of 2030. At Ince Alberta is part of the team advising ZESTA’s members – additional information can be found here: https://zestas.org/about-ince/.
