Dr. Stefan Ullrich’s daily work involves both insurance and maritime law. He advises and represents insurance companies in maritime and non-maritime matters including complex insurance disputes and worldwide coordination of both cover defence and recourse action disputes. 

Stefan also acts for shipowners, tug boat companies, charterers, freight carriers, forwarders, P&I clubs and hull underwriters in international commercial disputes involving all aspects of both sea and inland navigational merchant shipping, carriage by road and freight forwarding law.

With a focus on contentious matters, Stefan acts in GMAA-arbitration and German court proceedings including interim actions (e.g. ship arrests and preliminary injunctions).

Having studied law and Swedish language in Würzburg and Lund, Stefan obtained an additional degree in European law and submitted his doctoral thesis on Hanseatic commercial and shipping law.

Prior to joining Ince in 2012, Stefan worked for well-known law firms with a focus on shipping and insurance as well as one of the leading German shipping companies, both before and after his qualification as German Rechtsanwalt in 2009.

Stefan has extensive procedural and negotiation experience which is enhanced by his training as a (maritime) commercial co-mediator.

Stefan’s recent caseload has included a severe maritime casualty – fire on board a car carrier – in the port of Hamburg and a number of cover disputes and recourse actions for well-known players in the international insurance community in respect of fraudulent yacht claims, involving arson and scuttling.
