The Association is sad to report that Ioannis (John) Leftakis died suddenly on 21 November 2015.  John was a longstanding member of the LMAA and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. 
 
John joined the LMAA as a supporting member in 1990 and become a full member in 1998.  Before beginning his career as a full time arbitrator, John accumulated a wealth of practical and legal shipping experience at sea and ashore.  
 
John started his career at sea as a deck officer and then master, acquiring further practical experience as an in-house broker, operator and claims advisor in Greece.  He then moved to the UK, obtained an LLM from the University of Wales College Cardiff, following which he became a well-respected legal advisor in the London market for over a decade.
 
Our thoughts are with his widow, Marta, and his family at this time.
