Ports & Marinas
When it comes to the law, ports and marinas are a niche sector. Finding a law firm that not only understands the theory but is also experienced in the practice can be tricky.
We are one of the few firms that can offer the expertise and experience you need and we work with a number of Port Authorities, Harbour Commissioners and marina operators.
Our teams advise on port and harbour development matters, including the necessary Harbour Revision Orders which may be required. We can also help you with operational issues such as removal of vessels and recovery of outstanding berthing fees or harbour dues.
Other areas of support include advising on and handling prosecutions for offences within the harbour jurisdiction, including breaches of harbour byelaws, and deal with personal injury claims and other health and safety issues.
