Maritime Law

Given its perfectly placed geographical position, Malta has become an important maritime hub. Our associates can assist you in the sale and purchase of vessels, ship and yacht registration, ship finance and taxation of shipping organisations. We can advise on chartering agreements, ship building, refit and repair contracts and crewing requirements. We also frequently assist in marine litigation and the execution of maritime claims by the arrest of vessels, court approved private sales and sales by judicial auction.
