INTERNATIONAL TRADE & TRANSPORTATION

We help keep the goods moving with our wealth of knowledge and understanding of working with maritime clients.

Our approach

Global trade is exploding. Trillions of dollars’ worth of goods cross borders every year.

We provide a full range of legal services to the domestic and international maritime industry, working with all forms of transport and related logistics.

Our skilled counselors guide clients through requirements of the port authorities, Federal Trade Commission, Federal Maritime Commission, United States Coast Guard, United States Maritime Administration and the vessel documentation agencies of other countries.

With a maritime practice dating back more than a century, we have a head start on industry innovation.

We frequently collaborate on compliance with regulators and are familiar with the commercial operations and compliance issues of port authorities and terminal operators throughout the U.S. Our industry-leading equipment finance practice works on virtually all maritime industry financing and deftly handles subsidy financing matters.

We deal with all the programs sponsored by the United States Maritime Administration under the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, as amended for the benefit of new builds and existing vessels. We also represent maritime and logistics companies in public and private M&A transactions, working with ship owners, charterers, financial institutions, underwriters, indenture trustees and owner trustees.

We work with

  • Domestic and overseas ship owners
  • Charterers
  • Marine terminals
  • Suppliers of transportation equipment to ship owners and marine terminals
  • Marine logistics companies and their marine insurers
