Kass, Chair of Vedder Price’s Global Transportation Finance team. “His wealth of experience both in New York and English law transactions and his collaborative approach further strengthens our maritime finance and client service capabilities.”

“I am delighted to join a robust transportation finance team,” said Nam. “I look forward to working collaboratively with my new colleagues and contributing to meet the needs of our clients on a truly international platform.”
