Protecting and promoting high standards in the practice of English Maritime Law
Norton Rose LLP is a pre-eminent international legal practice in the shipping and transport sector and the only firm to legal a specialist all-round service. Our Admiralty team is an integral part of this practice offering advice from our offices in London, Athens, Singapore and Bahrain. We recognise that a casualty may occur at any time, and in response, our team of expert individuals, including legally qualified Mariners, can ensure that legal assistance is available around the clock.
The team will advise on all areas of admiralty and commercial law and is able to call on an extensive network of correspondents and experts worldwide to assist as and when required. The Admiralty team has considerable experience of handling major maritime disasters worldwide as well as those of a less dramatic nature. Whilst offering particular expertise in the passenger and cruise ship market sector, in which we have acted as lead advisers in numerous casualties, our experience also extends to ferries, containerships, tankers and dry cargo ship casualties involving:
Collisions • total losses • explosion/fires • salvage/towage/wreck removal • groundings/strandings • pollution and • loss of life and personal injury
The Admiralty team offers a 24 hour global response and a computer-based case management system. For major casualties or disasters, we have a 24 hour switchboard number +44 (0)207 283 6000 in our London office. Calling this number triggers our emergency response procedure both in London and in our overseas offices and should only be used when there is a need for immediate casualty assistance.
