Disputes Concerning Vessel Sales

We advise ship purchasers in the event of problems to the ship following delivery. In particular, in the event of non-compliance or latent defects we take action against the seller, the shipbuilder or the ship repairer. Our firm has acquired particular expertise in this field by mastering the technical aspects of vessels and the relationship between the vessel’s sales contract and the financing agreement (leasing, lease with option to buy).
