Legal Solutions for the Maritime Industry

The Law Firm began its maritime practice with a focus on maritime defense. Yet years of practice gave the firm a comprehensive knowledge of how the maritime industry works. The Law Firm can view the industry from various perspectives - cargo, vessel, charterer, insurer, local agent, freight forwarder, or crewing agent.

Because of this experience, the Law Firm can quickly master the factual and legal complexities of any dispute in the maritime industry. Coupled with the firm's expertise in the art and science of litigation, the client can achieve creative strategies and solutions.

We keep clients apprised of developments. We also work with them to establish the essential facts necessary in evaluating the merits of each case. To determine at an early stage whether a particular claim can be successfully defended or should be settled on best terms in order to avoid the costs of litigation.

To avoid the costs of unnecessary litigation, we work with clients in evaluating the merits of each case, at the earliest possible time, to determine whether a particular claim can be defended or should be settled.

If litigation is inevitable, the client can expect a cost-effective approach. We are sensitive to the budgetary concerns of the client.

Because of our experience, we can give guidance and assistance on a whole range of legal, practical, and
operational problems.

The client can expect from us prompt attention, a sympathetic ear, sound legal advice and practical guidance. As well as an opportunity to discuss problems at an early stage and be given advice on what options are available before any money is spent.

Our advice is not a mere recitation of the latest case law. We weigh up both the commercial and legal realities of a case and express it in a clearly understood manner.
