Our Admiralty team is an integral part of the global shipping practice offering advice from our offices in London, Greece, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, South Africa, USA and Canada. 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 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. The size and global distribution of our team, and the breadth of our experience, enables us to deal with the most complex marine casualties involving collisions, explosion/fires, salvage/towage/wreck removal, groundings/strandings, pollution, loss of life and personal injury. We are also ideally placed to advise on limitation of liability as well as arrests to secure jurisdiction, obtain security or enforce judgments. The key to our service is seamless cross-jurisdictional advice.

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 and provide updated contact details by way of a weekly email.
