DISPUTE RESOLUTION

We pride ourselves on putting ourselves in your shoes, and when it comes to dispute resolution, whether it be for a shipyard or an owner, we treat your case as if it were our own.

Sometimes that means fighting hard and aggressively protecting your rights, although it often requires a more strategic approach, in order to resolve a dispute quickly and cost-effectively.

Recent examples of our work include:

  • Advising a Dutch shipyard in respect of a Design Rights dispute over a €25M+ construction project, which was complicated by the fact that the shipyard had purchased the design at the request of the owner.
  • A dispute over a substantial deposit following the withdrawal by a purchaser from a brokerage transaction. We successfully extricated our client from the dispute tactically, using our considerable experience, and avoiding formal arbitration proceedings.
  • Advising the owner in a claim against a Northern European shipyard, where a 60+ metre newbuild was delivered with sub-standard paint application.
  • Advising the owner in a charter dispute valued at €15M, concerning one of the world’s largest yachts.

We also advise on ‘wet’ casualties, including collisions and partial or total losses, as well as ship arrests.
