Ports in a storm – Can Ince get back on course?


Once a leading player in marine and insurance work, Ince & Co has been hit by discord and an ailing core market. Legal Business assesses the high-risk course the firm is charting in response.

Blue, purple and pink LED lights flash on entering the doors to Ince & Co’s new home at London’s Aldgate Tower. Inside is a spacious office decked out with the latest tech, contemporary meeting rooms and a communal café. Around the corner is an open-plan office where leadership duo Jan Heuvels and Paul Herring sit among their teams. There are no phones in this office; each desk boasts a Surface Pro – the latest Microsoft tablet – with a built-in phone integrated with the firm’s e-mail.
