Maritime Law (also known as Admiralty Law) is a separate body of law governing a variety of maritime related disputes. Maritime law is a unique area of our practice, and we have the capability to respond nationwide to defend our clients in relation to maritime seizures, and our lawyers have achieved substantial resolutions on behalf of clients in maritime disputes.
Our Firm has represented and has the capability to represent a broad range of clients in numerous cases: cargo carriage disputes; oil spills; water pollution claims; vessel financing; and ship operation, construction and re-building disputes; maritime liens; commercial contractual claims (including charter parties); and a variety of other maritime disputes.
While most maritime firms need to maintain outside criminal counsel to cover the potential criminal liabilities arising from pollution accidents, our firm has the in-house capability to handle both the civil and criminal aspects of such cases. Furthermore our criminal maritime lawyers are not only extensively experienced in criminal matters and criminal procedure, they are also experienced other areas of maritime practice.
We are involved primarily in handling admiralty and maritime eases. This means that we are highly knowledgeable of cases pertaining to accidents, injuries, and other situations involving cruise ships, yachts, and other watercraft.
