Tony Concagh

27 October 2020

Tony is a partner at Stephenson Harwood LLP. For more than 20 years, Tony Concagh has been a premier legal advisor to the offshore energy industry and has represented many of its best-known companies. At Stephenson Harwood LLP since 2002, he has been described by his clients in legal directories as “tough and commercial”, “through and capable” and “a true offshore specialist”. He has acted for his clients around the world in many high-profile disputes (both in the English High Court and in commercial arbitrations) including a $500 million drilling rig dispute, which was the largest ever LMAA arbitration by value. He regularly advises on problems and disputes relating to specialist vessels including OSVs, SSVs, DSVs and CSVs, HLVs, and drilling units. As a result, he has unmatched experience with the BIMCO suit of offshore forms. In 2019, he represented the successful owners in the first reported case on SUPPLYTIME 2017, Atlantic Marine and Aviation LLP vs Boskalis Offshore. This established the basis on which an owner has the immediate right to payment of an undisputed invoice without set off. The decision has implications for payment terms in all forms of contracts on English law. In recent years he has been instrumental in the development of handling disputes in the offshore renewables industry. Most recently he and his team advised on schedule delays and cost increases on a £2.3 billion wind farm project. In 2017 he launched a successful judicial review in the English High Court on behalf of an EPIC contractor against the UK government’s work permitting policy for non-EEA specialist crew constructing wind farms in UK waters. He has been invited to speak by BIMCO at workshops and presentations worldwide since 2008.
