Shipping

We have a strong and expanding group of barristers across all levels of seniority working in shipping and related fields. Work covers all areas of dry shipping, wet shipping, commodities, and ship construction and sales.

We handle bill of lading and charterparty disputes of all shapes and sizes, from the smallest demurrage claim to very high value claims concerning charterparty cancellations or FFAs. We also have specialist admiralty practitioners who can deal with matters such as arrests and the enforcement of ship mortgages.

We have expertise in shipbuilding disputes involving a wide range of different types of vessel, from high speed yachts to FPSOs and container ships, with members of chambers acting both for and against shipyards all over the world.

Our barristers appear in a wide range of international shipping arbitrations (including LMAA, LCIA, ICC, HKIAC, SIAC, SCMA and other arbitral tribunals) in addition to the English Courts. Members of chambers also sit as arbitrators.
