Marine law is a complex and special area of law that impacts any case that involves ships or boats, waterways, navigation and shipping, maritime employment, commercial fishing, mooring, marine pollution, property damage or injuries on the water. There are unique rights and obligations that come into effect in these cases and having an experienced lawyer on board means that clients can navigate to the best outcome possible. Keeping up to date on the latest developments in marine law is challenging. Avoiding uncharted legal waters that can sink an otherwise salvageable case is critical.
