Shipping & Vessel Registration

We deal with all types of contentious and non-contentious maritime law issues, from disputes arising under charterparties to ship sale and purchase. We have acted in multiple disputes in relation to cargo liens by shipowners, payment of freight, demurrage, speed and consumption claims, deviations, issue of seaworthiness, misdelivery and other claims under bills of lading, arrest of ships and others.

Our lawyers represented clients in multiple LMAA, ad hoc and other maritime arbitration proceedings. We also have substantial experience dealing with these matters in the High Court in London. We have arrested vessels in various jurisdictions in support of our clients’ maritime claims, including Georgia, Bulgaria, Malta and Turkey.

We can assist clients with the incorporation of companies and the registration of vessels in the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI). Our aim is to offer a bespoke one-stop shop service, advising clients on the various corporate structures which may be set up to own the vessel(s) or pleasure craft(s) which a client may wish to fly the flag of the RMI. We can register vessels under the Marshall Islands flag, register charges and so forth, using our agreement with the RMI.
