Expert English Maritime Lawyers


Take Control. Get Results.

Maritime law is a distinct body of both domestic law governing maritime activities and private international law governing the relationships between companies that operate ships on the oceans of the world and the tidal waters of rivers. It deals with all matters including marine commerce, international trade, shipping, marine navigation and the transportation of passengers and goods by sea. Maritime law also covers many commercial activities, which although land based are maritime in character.

These matters have been our focus for over 30 years. An expert shipping company deserves an expert English maritime law firm. Our business is to assist you. Full Stop. We provide an efficient and personal legal service, often utilising innovative tactics to break deadlocked situations.
