We are known as one of the few major corporate practices with significant skill in shipping matters, backed by a full service practice in New York and throughout the US and a team of over 200 shipping lawyers worldwide. Due to the breadth of our experience, we are able to deal with any shipping-related transaction, from the most complex structured and leasing transaction or litigation, to the more straightforward sale and purchase transaction, charter party negotiation or cargo claim. Our ship finance partners have typically represented US and foreign banks active in international shipping transactions. In addition, we increasingly represent non-traditional sources of ship financing, including governmental finance support entities and issuers in capital markets transactions.
We are involved in a full range of ship finance transactions, including: capital markets; private debt and equity placements; joint ventures; finance and securities arrangements; shipbuilding contracts, charters and pools; ports; sale and purchase; mergers, acquisitions and divestitures; secured and unsecured financing; structured finance; international commercial transactions and disputes; corporate governance and structure; formation, restructuring and mergers of offshore and domestic entities; international taxation; bankruptcy and environmental.
