    Offering crucial local employment advice to multi-jurisdictional marine organisations.

    Our dedicated employment team undertakes the full range of transactional and contentious work, covering domestic and international issues, including corporate immigration and therefore has the ability to support the marine industry globally.

    We have considerable litigation experience across a wide range of employee disputes, encompassing breach of contract, confidentiality issues, breach of restrictive covenants and fiduciary duty. Our emphasis is on resolution and we have used mediation techniques successfully in settling cases.

    We provide extensive training to clients on claims prevention and manager awareness as well as topical issues such as the Maritime Labour Convention 2006, which came into force in over 50 countries in August 2013 and continues to be ratified in an increasing number of countries.

    We work closely with many of our other teams in order to resolve any potential issues, for example working closely with our Health and Safety team in relation to employee injuries and deaths in the context of offshore activities.
