Shipping lawyers from UK-based Myton Law have been put through their paces at a maritime training session in order to gain valuable insight into their work with maritime, cargo and personal injury cases.

The training session, which took place at the Modal Training facility in Immingham, put lawyers John Habergham, Scott Yates and Sam Minall, through bespoke training including among other topics, course plotting, maritime navigation, hazard identification and good bridge practice.

“Having Modal Training in the Humber region means we can keep abreast of current maritime technology and practices,” said Scott Yates of Myton Law.

“The opportunity to get right up to date with modern equipment and technology and the ship’s bridge simulator experience we’ve gained today will be a great help to us as we act for clients in maritime, cargo and personal injury cases.  It’s been a challenging and fascinating day.”

Myton Law provides commercial legal services from offices on Hull’s Humber waterfront. In addition to shipping, road and rail freight, logistics, insurance and offshore renewables, Myton Law’s expertise includes commercial property and international trade.

Modal Training uses state of the art simulators to provide scenario-based training for the maritime, offshore, ports and logistics sectors, which replicates real world working environments.

The training company works across many sectors within the Maritime industry and is a £7m investment opened at Immingham, North East Lincolnshire, in 2016. It is wholly owned by the Grimsby Institute Group.
