We are aware that cross-border issues often need to be handled urgently, and for that purpose we have developed an extensive global network. Clients value both our specific knowledge of transport law and our wide international network which enable us to deal with cross-border projects quickly.

Our transport and logistics practice is not limited to carriage issues. We offer comprehensive solutions in real estate (port property management services, warehousing, etc.), financing (ship construction, purchasing, leasing, etc.), dispute resolution (arrest of vessels, forced sales, claims of damages, etc.), and other fields of law relevant to the transport industry (employment, competition, state aid, etc.).

Clients choose us for our excellent industry know-how, in-depth knowledge of transport law, and ability to resolve cross-border issues.
