Shipping is a uniquely challenging industry, impacted as it is by matters outside the stakeholders’ control such as geopolitical tensions, fluctuating energy prices, climate change and regulatory issues. Those engaged in shipping always need access to the highest-quality legal advice to help minimise the risks presented by this commercial landscape.

We advise on dry and wet shipping issues, from cargo claims and charterparty disputes to collisions and salvage.

We understand that different vessels involved in different trades face their own unique challenges and at Shearwater Law the breadth of our experience means we are well placed to assist with these various challenges.

Recognising that shipping is an inherently global business, Shearwater Law is able to deal with matters of English law anywhere in the world.
