We bring 50 years’ collective experience and learning which enables us to develop sound, directly applicable solutions for the issue in hand, whether it is a contract negotiation, a potential dispute or a strategic decision.
We have assisted clients through hard recession as well as periods of rapid market expansion and we have seen the complexity of yacht projects (and regulation) grow exponentially while retaining a clear focus on the important legal and commercial issues.
We are as well versed in dispute management as in contract formulation and can provide advice and support negotiating and documenting new build and refit contracts, including specialist subcontracts and warranty terms; dealing with the issues that arise at or before delivery or re-delivery and during the warranty periods.
Yacht managers, naval architects, designers, technical representatives and engineers are all dealing with increasingly complicated and demanding contracts in a world in which their clients’ expectations are changing. We can help you navigate these changes in a suitably professional manner.
If you need legal and commercial support we can provide it – if you are tasked by your clients to deal with matters outside your own direct experience we can probably assist. We are familiar with international legal procedures and have excellent relationships with lawyers in other states and countries.
