Every firm has a specialty; but we have a spectrum of specialties and maritime law is at the heart of it. Shipping and maritime is a constantly changing industry in a dynamic regulatory environment. This can be attributed to various reasons including shifting global policies, intercountry diplomatic ties, global trade connections, and the value and demand of a given commodity.
