Shipbuilding and offshore construction

If you are involved in a new-build project you will be pleased to know that our lawyers know the ship and offshore construction industry.

The market for shipyards remains challenging. You will want people who can negotiate large difficult contracts and identify potential areas of dispute before they become an issue:

  • The team includes a former naval architect who trained as a ship surveyor in Lloyd’s Register and who has first-hand experience of supervising shipbuildings in Asia;
  • We are experienced in construction disputes, including disputes concerning the most technical of structures, such as drill ships, semi-submersibles and FPSO units; and
  • We have a native Korean speaker on our team.

If matters do become contentious, you will want people who can execute an effective strategy, who understand the technical issues, and who can work closely with experts to resolve the technical and legal issues involved in document heavy litigation.
