MARITIME & TRANSPORT LAW

We have always been closely associated with maritime and transport law. Our specialised lawyers are able to provide you with advice concerning charter law and general transport law; in the fields of land, air and rail transportation, inland navigation and multimodal transport, and on the subject of transport and marine insurance law, shipping law and logistics law. In addition, we will support you in the purchase and sale of vessels and in the financing and registration of vessels.

 

Alongside our sometimes leading regional position within the JUVE Handbook of German Commercial Law Firms and in The Legal 500, our maritime and transport law specialists have been awarded top positions in the Legal 500 (top tier for transport law, 2nd tier for maritime and shipping law), the Kanzleimonitor (ranked top for transport and logistics law), and have also been named amongst the top 14 law firms in the country for the years 2015 and 2016 in FOCUS magazine's comprehensive list of lawyers in Germany (Deutschlands große Anwaltsliste) thanks to a disproportionally high number of recommendations from colleagues.
