We provide legal services at every stage of the project, from financing of ship construction, negotiating and implementing shipbuilding contracts, to the operation of vessels. We help shipyards to secure their claims during the construction or repair process. We support our clients during the acceptance procedures which end the ship construction or repair process.

We provide opinions on contracts related to the transport of persons and cargo.
