BDM Law Blog goes live

Following the successful launch of our website, we are pleased to announce the launch of our online blog where we aim to keep our clients and supporters up to date on recent legal decisions and developments that may be of interest to them.

As our clients will know, we are a niche firm operating in the shipping, trade, energy and insurance sectors. We are committed to providing our clients with maximum value for money. This means that we need to keep overheads low. We don’t employ professional support lawyers to review recent decisions and write extensive summaries nor do we have a marketing department to send mail shots to our clients. Our law blog is designed to reflect the views of our working lawyers so please forgive us if it is shorter than the more extensive information put out by other law firms. If there is a decision or development of considerable significance then we may issue a more detailed client alert and circulate this to those clients that we feel might be significantly impacted.

Our lawyers have been monitoring developments over the summer and we shall be circulating our first posting on the BDM Law Blog shortly.

BDM is a specialist shipping law firm offering high quality legal advice and representation at a reasonable price. Please follow us on social media by clicking below.
