Maritime Law

Maritime law is a legal practise area that deals with nautical issues or a variety of insurance issues related to cargo on ships, civil issues between vessel owners and passengers, and piracy issues on open waters. It also covers registration, inspection and insurance of ships. Maritime lawyers are licenced lawyers whose primary emphasis is the law of any maritime operation. In cases involving the seas, oceans and other open bodies of water, they serve clients or companies.
