Jeanne M. Grasso, co-chair of Blank Rome’s Maritime and International Trade group, was named among All About Shipping’s “Top Women in Shipping” for the second year in a row. She is notably ranked in the top 30 of the 189 women from all sectors of the shipping industry recognized for 2020.
To determine the Top Women in Shipping, All About Shipping collects data and notes on the leading women in the industry who have offered and influenced the shipping world and the wider female community to all intents and purposes. The honorees for 2020 were particularly commended for being “valiant and admirable women” who outperformed during such a challenging year. At Blank Rome, Jeanne focuses her practice on maritime, international, and environmental law for clients worldwide. She counsels owners and operators of vessels, charterers, cargo owners, and facilities, including manufacturing facilities, both marine-side and inland. She writes and lectures extensively on criminal enforcement of environmental laws and U.S. Coast Guard regulatory matters, and also conducts training sessions and helps clients establish compliance programs in an effort to avoid enforcement actions. Jeanne is highly ranked by Chambers USA for her work in shipping regulatory matters, and has also been recognized as a leading maritime attorney by The Legal 500 United States, Who’s Who Legal, Lloyd’s List, Best Lawyers in America, and Super Lawyers.
