Mr. Rice was literally born into the oil patch (being the grandson of a pioneer drilling contractor and the son of a Petroleum Engineer), and before entering the legal profession, he worked as a roustabout, rotary floor hand or "roughneck", offshore barge engineer and consulting geologist. Since 1971, he has devoted a major portion of his law practice to matters of interest to the marine and energy industries and their insurers and has been instrumental in the conception, development and introduction of many policy wordings, exclusions and endorsements currently in use in the London, Scandinavian and North American markets. He is currently general manager of Winston Edw. Rice LLC, a firm of his foundation specializing in and limiting its practice to selected matters of marine and energy contract, casualty and insurance law
