Maritime Industry

Although our law firm is not located on the coast, we do have many years of experience in drafting agreements for the maritime industry, in handling maritime accidents and in the field of marine insurance both on the high seas and on inland waters. We have particular expertise in the area of the purchase and sale of ships and yachts, including ownership structures, flagging, and tax models. We advise shipping companies, shipyards, engineers, ship owners and wealthy yacht owners. Some of our lawyers are experienced regatta sailors themselves or hold motor boatmasters’ certificates and are familiar from personal experience with the legal as well as technical and economic challenges in this branch of business.
