UK Guide Rankings

UK-wide Shipping Legal Rankings

Ranking Tables

The UK Guide ranks the best law firms and solicitors handling both contentious and non-contentious shipping work. The UK-wide table ranks the best shipping firms and solicitors across the UK with offices located in London, Guilford, Newcastle, Hull, Ipswich, Southampton and Liverpool among other locations. There is a separate table for the top ranked firms and lawyers in Scotland.

Typical work on the contentious side includes breaches of charter-party disputes, cargo and bills of lading claims, the arrest of vessels and cargoes, marine insurance claims, collision, salvage and environmental liabilities. On the non-contentious side, law firms advise on contractual arrangements for construction, registration of vessels, customs and licensing, and documentation relating to charter-parties and bills of lading.
