Maritime and Shipping Law


Significant challenges and opportunities exist in the shipping and broader maritime sectors. Maritime law consists of both domestic law on maritime activities, and private international law governing the relationships between private parties operating or using ocean-going ships.

Matters dealt by Maritime law include marine commerce, marine navigation, salvage, maritime pollution, seafarers’ rights, and the carriage by sea of both passengers and goods. Maritime law also covers land-based commercial activities that have maritime characteristics, such as marine insurance.
