Michelet & Co’s lawyers have extensive experience in advising the international shipping community, acting principally for owners, managers, charterers, insurers and brokers world wide.

We use our in-depth shipping expertise to guide clients through their complex legal disputes as well as issues arising in their day-to-day operations.

Our lawyers have acted in numerous and complex shipbuilding and construction, charterparty, shipmanagement and bunker disputes, cross-border insolvencies and casualties to name some areas.  We also have a wealth of expertise in all matters relating to security and enforcement on a worldwide basis.

Whilst our lawyers have very significant experience in conducting cases before the Courts and arbitral panels, the principal goal is to seek to help clients avoid litigation and to resolve disputes on the best possible terms.

We also assist our shipping clients with the drafting and negotiation of agreements and we provide guidance on sanctions and other compliance matters.

Our advice is always commercial, and our service is tailored to meet the 24/7 demands of the industry.  Wherever and whenever problems arise, and whether matters be complex or modest, we are here to help.
