Shipping & Maritime Law

Apex Law > Service > Shipping & Maritime Law

The area of shipping and maritime law is concerned with ships and the individuals employed in or around them, as well as the shipment of goods by merchant vessels.

Shipping and maritime law is a complex body of customs, legislation, international treaties, and court decisions dealing with the rights and responsibilities of ownership and operation of vessels that travel on the high seas. Much of the commercial law surrounding transportation of goods by ship involves contractual agreements between the shipowner and the party wishing to ship the goods. However, these agreements generally are based on long-standing customs and business practices peculiar to the shipping industry.
