Shipping

We can deal with all types of shipping issues ranging from disputes to contractual, shipbuilding and sale and purchase issues.

We cover regulatory and sanctions issues relating to shipping, cargo recovery and defence, legal issues arising under charterparties and bills of lading, passenger and crew claims, piracy, hijacking and pollution issues, salvage claims in LOF arbitration and issues relating to SCOPIC and wreck removal contracts.

Although over 95% of disputes are settled short of legal proceedings, between us we have handled hundreds of Court cases, arbitrations and mediations. We are adept at handling disputes effectively and efficiently. Our aim is to achieve a sensible resolution either through negotiation or mediation avoiding the need for unnecessary costs.

As well as disputes, our team has extensive experience of shipbuilding, ship financing and sale and purchase matters. We have helped our clients to build ships, finance ships and sell ships including dealing with all regulatory and registration issues that have arisen.
