Guy Walker

Consultant Solicitor
Marine Law

Former Senior Partner, Guy qualified as a solicitor in 1975 and was a Partner from 1977 – 2016. His areas of work involve dispute resolution, mainly but not exclusively for commercial clients. Guy is a very experienced litigator but, conscious of the significant costs of conventional litigation, he is always ready to explore alternative dispute resolution options to assist clients. As a Consultant Solicitor Guy now specialises in marine and fisheries cases as well professional negligence claims..

He is regularly instructed by both national and  European clients in marine claims and commercial fishing cases. His work includes a wide variety of yacht and leisure craft claims as well as sale and purchase of vessels.

According to Legal 500:

Providing ‘a very good and comprehensive level of service’ Nash & Co is highly regarded among peers for its expertise in the fishing industry. The team is active in a broad range of issues in maritime law, ranging from ship purchase agreements and other transactional matters to defending fatal accident cases and handling civil claims. A particular strength is handling cases arising from boarding at sea and detention of fishing vessels. The team regularly represents vessel owners and their crew who are being prosecuted by inshore fisheries and conservation authorities or the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, and has experience in acting for owners of foreign-owned vessels.

Guy was President of Plymouth Law Society in 2004, and was a Director of Plymouth Chamber for many years.  He is a member of the Professional Negligence Lawyers Association and the British Marine Federation.

“I was very happy with the service you provided, and the way that you ensured clarity of what had been done and what still needed to be done at every step of the way.  In the past I had mistakenly thought it was always thus when dealing with solicitors but more recently have realised it’s not always the case at all.  I will definitely use Nash & Co for any future marine legal needs”
