Shipping & Logistics

At the heart of globalization

Shipping, logistics, and international trade are, by nature, dependent of each other and one cannot exist without the other.

Our team has long experience and thorough understanding of the needs and risks involved in the shipping, international trade, and logistics service markets – not only from the side of ship owners, carriers, freight forwarders or other logistics service providers but also from the side of the cargo interest, and of overall insurance issues. As the international element is usually involved, the team is experienced in assisting clients in international disputes before courts and in arbitration.
