Ports and Terminals

Ports and terminals are the places on a waterway with facilities for loading and unloading ships. Our dedicated team deliver practical advice across the ports and terminals sector – primarily in relation to port investment, development, operation and financing.

The ports and terminals industry has been profoundly affected by the global economic downturn, with dramatic changes to industry fundamentals, the value of port assets and the number and approach of new players/investors entering the market. As a result, specialist knowledge of the sector is now more important than ever. Our team has grown with and continues to adapt to the changing needs of the industry, providing risk‑sensitive and commercial legal advice grounded by sector knowledge.

We have a detailed understanding of key industry drivers and the perspectives of each industry participant. We work with our clients to successfully deliver projects and mitigate risk. Our dedicated ports and terminals team is well positioned to advice terminal operators and stevedores, shipping lines, investors, financiers and port users across all aspects of this diverse sector (including container terminals, break bulk, RoRo and cruise terminals).

We provide a full service in relation to port investment, development, operation and financing bringing together specialists from our finance, corporate, tax, regulatory, real estate and employment practices to provide comprehensive, integrated advice. We also regularly advise on day‑to‑day operations, including tax, employment, construction, IT, competition, project management, property, operation contracts, equipment leases and risk management.
