Monrovia Admiralty Lawyers Handle Cargo and Contract Claims

Liberia maritime attorneys represent clients in COGSA, charter party and vessel arrest cases

Liberia is a maritime nation with over 4000 vessels registered under and flying the Liberian flag. Liberian, maritime entities and their owners and shareholders , in the course of their activities, especially in dealing with banks, financial institutions and local authorities, do routinely require Liberian legal opinions  and advise to ensure that their activities are consistent with or in compliance with Liberia  law, the legal regime  under which the vessels operate. Activities of maritime entities may also give rise to disagreements that attract litigation in Liberia or in Foreign Courts which eventually require Liberian legal representation, expert witnesses, investigations and service of process.

Shipping companies, vessel owners charterers, financial institutions and others in the maritime industry operate under a variety of contracts. Shipping contracts, charter parties, ship mortgages, purchase agreements and bills of lading govern the operation of vessels and the shipment of goods. When a contract is breached or cargo is damaged in transit, these documents determine what happens.

Providing representation in maritime breach of contract claims

Many vessel owners don’t operate their own ships. Instead, they rent out use of their vessel under a contract called a “charter party.” Charter parties can allow for the use of the ship for a particular voyage or a certain amount of time. Disputes often arise over a ship’s seaworthiness, the purchase of supplies or demurrage. Our maritime attorneys assist clients in all types of contract claims, including vessel finance and purchase order disputes.
