Charterparties and other transportation contracts

We provide expert guidance on all major charterparty forms including demise, time and voyage charterparties, pool and slot agreements, contracts of affreightment and joint venture agreements, as well as the range of more specialist forms including those developed for offshore and heavylift vessels, wreck removal and ship recycling.

We count some of the world's highest-profile owners and charterers of commercial vessels among our long-standing client base, but equally we act regularly for smaller shipping companies and their insurers.

We also advise on the drafting of specific charterparty terms as well as whole contracts, using both existing standard forms and bespoke agreements. Our experience in litigating these contracts informs our ability to draft commercial agreements aimed at reducing risk and increasing protection.
