Ship Sale & Purchase Finance

Maritime law governs matters concerning all maritime activities and private international law which concerns the private business entities which operate ships and vessels. Maritime legal issues may concern commerce, navigation, shipping, ship personnel, and the ocean-going transportation of passengers and goods as well as land-based commercial matters which are maritime in nature. Maritime liens, mortgages, salvage, personal injuries to passengers, maintenance and cure of sailors, as well as the formation of vessel ownership business entities and ship registration are legal matters which may require our professional legal services.

We act for the heart of the maritime industry – shipbuilders, owners, charterers, salvors, financiers, port authorities and government, P&I clubs and insurers – and clients across the broader trade commodities and energy sector.

We are focused on providing pragmatic commercial solutions and understanding the issues affecting our clients and serving to their best interests. Our lawyers routinely advise on high-profile, ground-breaking cases.
