Excellent service and strategic legal advice from Tunisian solicitors expert in marine disputes.

The laws of shipping date back hundreds of years and are often quite complex. As a result shipping law disputes can often arise. Our marine disputes team understands the challenges and changing times being faced by the commercial and leisure marine industries.

Disputes affect the performance of your business, so we seek pragmatic solutions through negotiation and more formal litigation routes to protect your commercial and legal interests. Our marine disputes team is experienced in acting for owners, boat yards and builders, distributors and manufacturers on an array of issues, including breach of contract, negligence, sale of goods disputes and collisions. We also advise owners and sponsors of high profile race teams. We correspond with a global network of lawyers and experts to protect your position and provide strategic advice.

We take a proactive approach to resolving marine disputes by providing unambiguous advice and taking decisive action to find a practical solution quickly, employing a variety of settlement techniques, including mediation and arbitration. We proceed to litigation only if it is considered a necessary and cost effective solution.

We advise owners, charterers, managers and operators on disputes which arise under all forms of charter parties (time, voyage or COAs), providing expert advice on your rights and responsibilities.

Alongside this, we also provide a comprehensive business service to those dealing with bills of lading, whether they are liner operators, receivers or shippers.
