Our client base includes domestic and foreign ship-owners, involved in both inland navigation and marine navigation. We act for charterers and brokers too.

We also advise various shipyards, installation companies and suppliers that specialise in new builds or repairs and also suppliers, such as designers, outplacement firms and the suppliers of spares and general supplies.

We are regularly instructed to act for clients on cases relating to the arrest or seizure of ships, bunkers and/or cargo, or are asked to advise on a right of retention on a cargo. For more information on ship arrests, please visit our website

The involvement of ships in incidents is part and parcel of the shipping industry. The damage and losses sustained can be substantial.  In this field as in others, we advise parties on the question of who is to blame, on the extent of the damage and/or loss sustained and on the possibility to limit liability.
