Shipping & Maritime

Admiralty law or maritime law is a distinct body of law that governs maritime questions and offenses. It is a body of both domestic law governing maritime activities, and private international law governing the relationships between private entities that operate vessels on the oceans. It deals with matters including marine commerce, marine navigation, marine salvaging, shipping, sailors, and the transportation of passengers and goods by sea.

Admiralty law also covers many commercial activities, although land based or occurring wholly on land, that are maritime in character. Although each legal jurisdiction usually has its own enacted legislation governing maritime matters, admiralty law is characterised by a significant amount of international law developed in recent decades, including numerous multilateral treaties. TMT’s shipping practice includes the entire gamut legal issues including but not limited to dry/wet shipping, ship arrest/release, ship finance, ship buying/selling, international trade, personal injury, crew wages and P&I settlements. TMT’s practice also includes port projects and development, corporate advice, preparation and review of all contractual documentation required for any shipping related projects.
