Sometimes, legal proceedings cannot be avoided. We have the experience and expertise to assist you in these. Our assistance may range from arranging attachments to instituting interlocutory proceedings, and we regularly bring proceedings before the courts and courts of appeal and are experienced in (international) arbitration.

In foreign proceedings we use foreign lawyers who have won their spurs in (maritime) law.
