Shipping companies and shipowners

In shipping matters O&W’s lawyers are acting on behalf of shipping companies and shipowners to assist them with their legal queries. Collisions of vessels and the legal questions in connection with damage after the collision are part of our daily work.

We can help you in cases of total loss or recovery operations to avoid a total loss and also in cases of general average.

We also advise shipping companies who are held liable by charterers or cargo interests in connection with Charterparties and Bills of Lading.

Pollution of the environment by ocean vessels and subsequent consequences is also one of our fields of activity.
