about Us

Who we are 

Established as a legal consultant in 2018, we aim to provide a cost-effective, pragmatic source of Legal assistance for Charterers, trading houses, Shipowners, shipbrokers, Insurers and insurance intermediaries. 

With a background in commercial shipping, we look beyond the strictly legal aspects of any possible dispute. We strive for an pragmatic approach, identifying the underlying issues from a broader perspective, within the legal framework of law and contracts. 

As a result we provide solutions that can be a lot less invasive for costumer relationships and can be a lot more effective for your business.
