Shipping & Admiralty

RM Legal is distinctive in that it offers both wet and dry shipping aspects of shipping commerce. Our lawyers are experienced in dealing with matters in a cost effective manner and providing practical legal advice in dealing with all types of shipping and admiralty cases. We have a network of associates, lawyers, marine surveyors, investigators and loss adjusters, which we can draw upon in appropriate cases in order to provide a complete marine legal service to our clients.

The majority of shipping and admiralty matters have multi-jurisdictional factors to be considered and accordingly we are often required to deal with and or to instruct lawyers and experts from other countries to obtain advice on different legal systems as well as to consider international maritime conventions relating to admiralty laws.

We offer prompt and clear advice to a number of ship management companies, ship owners, shipbrokers and P&I clubs worldwide.
