    Acting for owners, operators and their insurers on all ownership and usage issues, whether contentious or non-contentious.

    From dealing with charterparties to vessel registration, owners and operators face a diverse range of legal issues. The end to end service our marine team provides means that we are able to advise and support both owners and operators across the spectrum of issues they may face.

    Working closely with our corporate and commercial team, the transactional matters that we deal with include: finance, risk management, force majeure, contracts of affreightment, bills of lading, fraud and electronic data interchange, consortia and pooling agreements, and registration and flag issues. We also advise on contractual terms including regulatory implications.

    Our disputes work includes unsafe port and berth claims, letter of credit disputes and cargo disputes. We understand the importance of using the most appropriate method (or combination of methods) in order to achieve the best result for our client.
