The Admiralty department headed by Ken Scott has a well established salvage practice representing major international salvors and handles significant collision and casualty cases around the world. Ken Scott and his fellow Admiralty partner, Michael Ellis, are well known in the salvage and marine casualty communities and both have been significant participators in committees and working parties on towage and salvage. Master Mariner Joe Riley brings very recent seagoing experience to the practice. He has commanded the Australian Government Emergency Towing Vessel and the Trinity House Flagship PATRICIA, commands that have given him special knowledge of current navigational practice and of practical Salvage and Towage.
