Shipping and Transport

Hextalls’ Shipping and Transport team has many years experience in maritime, trade and transport law. The team has developed from leading London maritime law firms and works with the Shipping, Transport and Logistics group led by Dominic Lang. Dominic is a supporting member of the London Maritime Arbitrators’ Association and acts as an arbitrator by invitation on shipping or freight disputes. Our Commercial Litigation team has expertise on issues arising on trade finance instruments and acts for importers/exporters and for opening/confirming banks.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Passenger shipping
  • Container and multimodal transport
  • Marine Insurance
  • Carriage and handling of goods
  • Charterparty
  • International Trade
  • Ship sale and purchase

In addition to handling contentious matters, we have considerable expertise in the drafting of maritime contracts, such as bills of lading, slot-charter and charterparty agreements, marine insurance policies, passenger tickets and booking terms, as well as advising on general commercial matters such as the storage, warehousing and importation of goods.
