The Firm’s maritime and shipping practice is one of the bedrocks of the Firm’s client base, and the Firm’s expertise in this area is uncontroverted. As one of the leading firms in these areas, the Firm’s maritime department is comprised of senior lawyers with years of experience in maritime and international trade practice. Some of these senior lawyers have studied or worked overseas, while others are former judges in maritime courts. The majority of the lawyers in the maritime department are fluent in both Chinese and English.

The Firm provides complete advice on all facets of maritime practice, including market access, regulatory and customs issues, and provides solutions to existing problems.

The Firm regularly represents clients in maritime litigation, insurance subrogation, collisions, and environmental and commercial disputes related to maritime practice, as well as demurrage, mediation, salvage and general average cases.
