Two Vancouver-based Norton Rose Fulbright lawyers have been appointed to high-level positions within prominent Canadian maritime law organizations.

Shelley Chapelski, partner and shipping lead in the law firm’s Canadian transport group, was elected to serve as president of the Canadian Maritime Law Association (CMLA); she is the second woman to hold this position in the association’s 68-year history.

Kaitlin Smiley, senior associate on Norton Rose Fulbright’s dispute resolution and litigation team, was named chair of the British Columbia branch of the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) Maritime Law Section. Smiley became the second woman to hold this position after Chapelski, who served as chair 15 years ago.
