Shipping

The financial crisis and its subsequent impact on global economic growth caused shipping volumes to fall sharply and the industry to focus on maintaining cash flow, earnings and volumes.

Survival was the watchword, but now activity has begun to rise with growth fuelled by emerging markets.

Our international Shipping group holds a premier position in the market. Through its experience advising a wide-ranging client base, it brings a rounded approach to transactions. Comprising enterprising lawyers with a track record in shipping from areas such as project finance, asset finance and leasing, capital markets, restructuring, tax, and mergers and acquisitions, we offer clients in the shipping sector a complete legal service.

We are the preferred counsel for a broad range of clients including lenders, banks, lessors, lessees, export credit agencies and shipowners. The range of vessels on which we advise include FPSOs, LNG carriers, drillships, container vessels, chemical tankers, VLCCs and luxury cruise ships.
