Our Commitment to Diversity


Our firm offers the United States and international maritime industry comprehensive legal, transactional, legislative, and regulatory capabilities. Our combined knowledge and experience are valuable assets for any business in the maritime industry, and our global presence allows us to help our clients solve complex problems, manage risk, and achieve their goals no matter where their needs may arise.

Our Maritime practice represents all major sectors of the maritime industry—liquid and dry bulk, liquefied natural gas, container, roll-on/roll-off, passenger and cruise, and specialized vessels such as offshore drilling units, power-generating barges, tugs, mobile offshore drilling units, offshore supply vessels, dredging, dive support, pipe and cable laying, fishing, and recreational boats.

The clients we represent include vessel owners and operators, managers, ports, terminal operators, marinas, energy companies, shore facilities, shipyards, investment and financing entities, industry groups and associations, as well as shippers, commodities traders, and others with maritime-related needs.

Additionally, the scope of our services and capabilities enables the Maritime group to assist clients seamlessly with most, if not all, of their legal services needs, such as insurance coverage issues, labor and employment matters, real estate transactions, construction law, and international transactions of every form.
