Shipping Litigation & Arbitration

​​​South Africa boasts a modern and expansive admiralty jurisdiction and is a preferred jurisdiction for maritime litigation, not only for the enforcement of maritime claims in South Africa but also for obtaining security for foreign proceedings.

Our team has renowned capabilities in contentious and non-contentious shipping matters, and considerable expertise in dealing with complex and high-profile disputes and maritime arbitration. Our approach is to work closely with our clients to understand their business and focus on finding the most efficient, cost-effective solution to any dispute, whilst ensuring the most favourable outcome for our clients.

We have experience in handling a wide range of disputes on behalf of owners, charterers, underwriters, Protection & Indemnity (P&I) Clubs and financial institutions - including advising on casualties, insurance and charter party disputes and arrests, as well as major maritime litigation resulting from disasters and casualties on land and sea.
