In the area of maritime/admiralty law, the firm defends disputes arising from collisions, founderings, explosions and fires at sea, and the transfer of cargo or personnel, to name a few.  Litigation in this area ranges from a simple case of common back injury caused by improper lifting to a complex property damage case resulting from a major hurricane that forced an offshore oil rig to break anchor.

The firm’s maritime/admiralty attorneys also provide legal services such as the preparation of documents and opinions, ship acquisitions, sales, leases, and mortgages, and the negotiation and enforcement of various oilfield and maritime-related contracts. These contracts include charter party contracts; preferred mortgage agreements; and Title 11 financing.
