Before he became a lawyer in Ontario, Canada, Andrei Korottchenko worked in Germany and the United States, where he was an in-house legal counsel for the largest break bulk carrier company in the entire world. While there, Andrei played an active role in a number of important commercial and corporate matters, including a number of complex purchase transactions and vessel sales. Since becoming a Toronto attorney after being admitted to the OntarioBar in 2015, Andrei Korottchenko has built up a pretty good track record in a number of practice areas. Mostly, Andrei practices in the areas of maritime and transportation law, with an emphasis on cargo recovery, but he is not limited to those areas, by any means. In fact, he also has significant experience handling matters involving subrogation and insurance defence.
Activist Attorney Andrei Korottchenko has thus far demonstrated a tendency to be an activist. For more than a decade, he has served in the Naval Reserve, including service on naval ships and bases throughout Canada, as well as overseas. Also, as part of his legal career, Andrei also serves his profession as a member of both the Ontario Bar Association and the Canadian Bar Associations, the Toronto Lawyers Association and the Canadian Maritime Law Association. Since he has been a member of the Young Lawyers Division of the Ontario Bar Association, Andrei Korottchenko has thus far run a number of continuing legal education seminars.
He seems to have impressed a lot of people because he often gets to teach other lawyers. In January 2017, for example, Andrei Korottchenko co-presented, with Hilary Weise, a presentation at the Motor Truck Council of Canada in Guelph, Ontario, called “Third-Party Contracts.” In June 2016, he also led a presentation on International trade traffic flows to the Association of Transport Law Professionals at a conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.
