We have many years of experience in the field of asset-backed and corporate finance. Further areas of specialisation include leasing finance and hire-purchase financing. In this context, we provide advice on and draw up the necessary collateral documents.
Shipbuilding / Sale & Purchase
We help you draft shipbuilding contracts and provide advice on existing contracts provided by your contractual partners.
International Contract Law
We review and prepare national and international agreements and advise you especially on English and German law.
Arbitration and Mediation
‘Alternative Dispute Resolution’ (ADR) is an alternative to official court litigation, and primarily comprises negotiation, mediation and arbitration. We are able to offer advice and support in both your choice of ADR method and in the actual proceedings. We also act as arbitrator / mediators. Rafal Malujda is an arbitrator at the Arbitral Tribunal of German Maritime Arbitration Association (link).
Charters and transport agreements
Charter agreement disputes, freight losses following shipping accidents and in the event of loss or damage to the goods during the ocean or multimodal transport or transhipment, something that has become increasingly important recently, are commonplace in the shipping business.
