Anchor handling tugs and offshore support vessels

Anchor handling tugs (AHTs) and OSVs in their various designs are used for a variety of tasks in the offshore market, frequently contracted under SUPPLYTIME or more complex oilfield contracts.

As an operator, charterer or an insurer of such vessels you will want your advisors to have an innate understanding of the industry and of the complex tasks that they can be called on to undertake.    

The legal team at Tatham Macinnes and at tugadvise-logo, the firm’s service to operators in this industry, have dealt with many cases – hire disputes, non payment, maintenance and delivery issues, breakdowns, loss of tow, collisions, girting and salvage are standard issues for us.

With members of our team having seagoing, tug operating, naval architecture and offshore engineering backgrounds and a QC who has presided over countless rescue towage and salvage cases as a Lloyd’s arbitrator, you are in safe hands.
