Maritime Law is distinctive as well as varied with many alcoves and specialisation areas. As a firm, we have both an in-depth knowledge and great passion for the shipping industry. We are well acknowledged for our sound understanding of marine and shipping sectors and the business needs that go hand-in-hand.
Admiralty law also includes several commercial activities, which encompass many lands based or land occurring on activities that are maritime in character. Although each legal jurisdiction usually has its own established legislation governing maritime matters, admiralty law is characterised by a significant amount of international law developed in recent decades, including numerous multilateral treaties.
Our shipping practice includes the entire extent of legal issues including but not limited to shipping, ship arrest or release, ship finance, ship buying and selling, international trade, personal injury, crew wages as well as P&I settlements. Our services also include but are not limited to port projects and development, corporate advice, preparation, and review of all contractual documentation required for any shipping related projects. To highlight some of our work, the firm has represented and advised Priya Blue – a company which has one of the highest tonnage in breaking and also has a green ship breaking/recycling plot in Bhavnagar.
