Maritime and Port
We can advise on all admiralty issues ranging from ship arrests to large maritime civil claims.
We have spent many years attending to claims arising from shipping incidents and in that time have built up excellent working relationships with a wide range of Assessors, Insurers and Government agencies involved in this area of Law. We are well versed in Maritime New Zealand investigations, Oil Spill investigations and prosecutions.
On the commercial side we are experienced in vessel sale and purchases and charter parties and can assist with any vessel related legal issue you may face.
