Shipbuilding & Offshore Construction

We take pride in our expertise and experience in the area of shipbuilding and believe we are the ‘go-to’ firm for shipbuilding and offshore construction.


Within our team we have the expertise and experience to help. The team includes first hand industry experience of shipbuilding and newbuilding surveying that will combine with our legal expertise. One of our partners is a former naval architect and trained as a ship surveyor with Lloyd’s Register.

With native Korean and Chinese speakers on the team, the firm is well placed to assist in these key geographical areas. We currently act for some of the market-leading shipbuilding companies.

Tatham Macinnes provides a service that covers the entire spectrum of shipbuilding and offshore construction projects, including disputes concerning the most technical of structures, such as drill ships, semi-submersibles and FPSO units.

We are well placed to provide you with specialist, pragmatic and tailored advice for drafting new build contracts, renegotiating and altering existing contracts, and decisively dealing with any disputes that may arise. The team also has extensive experience in handling dispute resolution, and can assist with English High Court litigation, arbitration before all major arbitral bodies, and mediation.
