Salvage & Casualties

The law has acknowledged the concept of maritime salvage since ancient Byzantine times, and while accidents and casualties are perhaps not as common nowadays, they still occur, often enough to keep us busy.
A ship comes aground; her owners should preserve the casualty, take immediate steps to minimize the damage, contract with salvors; cargo insurers should secure their rights and inspect the ship and circumstances; owners wish to declare GA; salvage arbitration takes place whether on LOF terms or otherwise; cargo owners wish to subrogate their damage; ship is seaworthy or not; limitation fund yes or not;  
Our firm handles most of such casualty cases in the region, as well as many salvage cases and arbitrations while applying our extensive seamanship and maritime experience together with our profound legal expertise for the benefit of the clients.
