Maritime Transport

Maritime Transport

For more than twenty years, we have been defending the interests of shippers, consignees, forwarding agents and carriers before the French Metropolitan and Overseas Commercial Courts in order to defend their interests in disputes that arise during the transport of goods.

Our firm is in the immediate vicinity of the Chamber of Transport of the Commercial Court of Marseille.

  • Damage to Goods and Cargo – General Average
  • Shipping Agency and Agents
  • Port Operator, Stevedore
  • Laytime and Demurrage
  • Freight Forwarding

We intervene in the event of damage caused to goods during maritime transport. We represent shippers, consignees, cargo insurers, carriers, freight forwarders and commission agents in order to defend their interests in these disputes (representation before Commercial Courts, organisation of expert appraisals in order to establish damage reports, etc.).

We also intervene in disputes relating to the payment of laytime and demurrage for goods stored in ports of delivery or unloading.

Our firm takes action on behalf of shipping agents in order to resolve legal issues related to the vessel’s port of call (ship arrest, port disputes, etc.).

Our intervention is facilitated by our firm’s strategic location in Marseille, a port of call for many ships.

We intervene in disputes relating to the transport of goods involving a forwarding agent (exercise of forwarding agent’s privilege, standard freight forwarding contract, forwarding agent liability).

We advise port operators in the development of their activities (assistance in the creation of stevedoring companies, shipping agents, etc.).

We also intervene in the interests of port operators of the ship in a port of call to assist in managing their disputes (stevedores, terminal operators, etc.).
