Maritime & Shipping Expertise

Our Maritime Law team has extensive local and international experience of all aspects of maritime and shipping law.

We advise in relation to both contentious and non-contentious work. The development of our team reflects Ireland’s rapidly growing national and international marine and shipping industry.

On the contentious side, we have successfully represented clients in all forums of dispute resolution including the High Court, arbitration and mediation. We represent a broad range of interests, including harbour companies, banks, contractors, underwriters and liner and cargo companies. Having acted for the entire range of stakeholders in maritime and shipping assets and projects, we are experienced in providing comprehensive commercial and solution-driven advice, paying particular attention to risk analysis and the early identification of issues that are relevant to clients.

In our non-contentious work we provide a full range of financing solutions for maritime infrastructural and shipping investment including the use of traditional secured bank lending, state funding and private equity. In addition, we advise in relation to the procurement and construction of harbour and port development.
