Dry Shipping

Well drafted documents are a valuable asset in today’s competitive shipping market. Without effective documents, disputes and claims are more likely to arise. We can assist you with all the documents relating to your maritime venture, from initial sale and purchase MOAs, shipbuilding contracts and corporate structure/joint venture agreements to charterparties, contracts of affreightments and bills of lading and anything else necessary.

We are one of the leading law firms for maritime law matters. Our lawyers are consulted and relied upon for their advice on the full range of contentious and non-contentious dry shipping matters. We deal with issues in relation to sale and purchase MOAs and shipbuilding contracts, charterparties, whether bareboat, voyage, slot or time charters, or matters relating to contracts of affreightment, damaged cargoes, letters of credit, bunker claims and unsafe port claims, amongst many other issues. We also regularly handle ship arrests and sales of vessels in courts around the world..

We can support you in the negotiation of contracts as well as advise you on regulatory and compliance issues and obligations including international sanctions.

Our lawyers in our global network of offices are at the forefront of the issues facing the shipping industry and understand the challenges that you are facing. It is this understanding that makes us so effective when working on your commercial contracts and documents and handling your disputes.
