About Lotte Schat

Lotte is an experienced lawyer active in the maritime manufacturing industry. She previously headed the legal department of one of Europe’s largest shipyards – she is therefore highly experienced in dealing with all the legal aspects involved in the wide range of stages involved in large-scale construction and other projects. Financing is an inherent part of such projects, and Lotte has ample experience in that field as well.

Litigation is a key part of Lotte’s practice. She was involved in complex international arbitration proceedings, both as a lawyer and as general counsel. One of her key assets is that she knows exactly what clients need in such proceedings and is able to provide the best possible legal assistance.

Her experience allows her to understand and represent the interests of different parties, including customers, shipping companies, vessel owners, shipyards, suppliers and lenders. 

Lotte always considers her clients’ commercial interests and the practical implications while providing legal assistance.  

Lotte is committed to her clients and offers in-house courses to them.
