    Acting for shipyards and buyers on the construction and refit of all types of vessels, we are well placed to understand the challenges of this forward-facing, dynamic micro-industry.

    Shipbuilding has been revolutionised over the last decade with new building practices and the increase in construction of specialist offshore vessels, such as LNG, LPG, FPSO, FLNG and intervention vessels. However yards continue to face challenges including intense global competition for new build orders, demanding delivery targets, technical innovation and tougher regulation.

    In the current climate, clients need to be assured they will receive accurate and appropriate contract advice, especially those participating in large scale projects, or those who are looking to renegotiate and restructure contracts. We have the necessary skill and experience to advise our clients when drafting and altering their contracts, as well as dealing with any potential disputes which may arise through these changes.

    The ability to act for both builders and owners in the shipbuilding cycle gives us an insight into both sides of the equation, whether dealing with new build, conversion, or shipbreaking and ship recycling, we offer both advisory and contentious advice.
