Our Piraeus team offers commercially focused advice on shipping, trade, insurance, corporate and commercial matters to clients from across the globe.


As a leading provider of shipping law advice, we maintain strong contact with the shipping communities in Greece, the Balkans and East Mediterranean through our Piraeus office bringing deep industry and legal knowledge to the issues our clients face.

Shipping, insurance and international trade are cornerstones of our global offering, and are key areas of focus for the Piraeus office. We also offer corporate/commercial and product liability services. We also advise on shipbuilding contracts and disputes, asset sale, purchase and leasing and logistics issues. Working across sectors, we advise insurers, oil companies, traders, brokers, port operators and many more.

Notable cases include: representing the salvors of the “New Flame”, a grounding/sinking off Gibraltar following a collision; a successful claim against the Grain Board of Iraq, defeating sovereign immunity defences; successfully rejecting claims made against professional indemnity insurers.

Clients recommend our hard working team of English and Greek lawyers, whose combined experience puts us at the forefront of shipping and commercial work in the region.
