MJM is the pre-eminent shipping finance  legal firm in Bermuda, with a focus on the Norwegian shipping and offshore drilling sector.  The firm is sought out by a growing list of local clients for our expertise in significant hotel, club and resort transactions. 

The firm is involved in new infrastructure projects in Bermuda - for ex., the redevelopment of the Bermuda Airport - having also previously been involved in the new hospital development.

We are regularly instructed on large real estate finance projects where the property holding entity is Bermuda incorporated or formed, the most notable project in recent years being the acquisition and financing of the “Gherkin” building in London.

MJM Directors and Senior Associates are instrumental in liaising with the Bermuda Government in shaping legislative/policy changes in the areas of corporate law and regulatory compliance.
