One of the main areas of work of InRight attorneys is private maritime law. We regularly resolve various maritime disputes or problems, regulate conflict situations, negotiate amicable settlements and provide a wide range of legal services to shipowners, charterers, P&I clubs, insurance companies and others active in the shipping sector, as well as represent our clients in court.
We represent our clients in disputes or regulatory proceedings of varying complexity in relation to debt recovery, seizure and release of ships, various types of cargo damage or shortage, compensation for seafarers injured at work or for the families of deceased seafarers, etc.
As “maritime” issues are often not confined to the borders of a single state, we cooperate with foreign specialists in various maritime fields and can offer a wide range of legal services. We cooperate effectively with colleagues and partners from abroad:
• klasificlassification societies;
• ISM, ISPS, MLC audit and certification service providers;
• P&I correspondents;
• siurvejeriais (independent damage and marine experts);
• foreign law firms;
• Flag inspectors of Liberia, Marshall Islands, Malta, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Kitts and Nevis, Panama, Bolivia and Honduras.
Knowing the daily challenges faced by our clients in the shipping sector, such as downtime and damage caused by delayed departures from port, one of our core professional values is to resolve problems quickly and efficiently. That’s why we are available 24/7/365 for “maritime” customers in urgent cases. In case of an urgent matter, please call to advocate Oleg Drobitko at +370 655 39609.
