    This full-service shipping firm excels in an array of wet and dry shipping disciplines in a far-reaching variety of international jurisdictions

    Acting for vessel owners, charterers and traders across all sectors, our aim is to keep vessels and cargo moving around the world.

    Charterparty matters, whether time charters, voyage charters or bareboat charters, relate to a variety of vessels including tankers, offshore support vessels, LNG carriers and containerships. We advise on all issues relating to charterparties, whether transactional or contentious.

    From drafting standard charterparty clauses, contracts of affreightment, or long term time charterparty arrangements, to dealing with force majeure risks, bills of lading, demurrage and dead freight, or forward freight agreements, our transactional experience covers all these aspects.

    We also assist clients when dealing with regulatory issues and compliance with international obligations and treaties, which is particularly important in an industry which moves rapidly through one jurisdiction to another.

    On the contentious side, we advise on breach of contract, loss of profit claims, unsafe port and berth claims, failure to pay hire or freight by charterers, letter of credit disputes, cargo disputes and contractual terms.
