We’re trained at dealing with accidents at sea and arguments on shore.
Navigating through maritime accidents
The combination of large cargo-laden modern ships, busy trading routes, and the unpredictability of weather conditions means that the risk of maritime accidents is very real. When maritime accidents occur, the consequences are often severe in terms of both reputation and human safety. We’ve worked with maritime accident cases such as fires, sinkings, collisions, and pollution – we understand that these are sensitive times, and we want to help you navigate through them.
Working with freight claims
Also known as shipping, cargo, or damage claims, these legal demands are issued with the intention of recovering losses – by getting the carrier to make the consignee or shipper “whole” once more. If you’re facing a freight claim or are looking to issue one, let us provide you with professional legal advice on how you can best present your case for the highest chance of success.
Financing your fleet
We’re not just here for the bad times. Looking to expand your vessel or fleet? We’re well-versed with the legal advisory work that’s related to syndicated financing, refinancing, and ship sale and purchase. Are you considering lending to a shipowner? We can provide guidance on how to ensure a professional and mutually beneficial transaction.
