Shipping is a key sector for both Ince & Co and Incisive Law which means much of our time and resource are focused upon it. A number of our team have worked as in-house counsel for P&I Clubs in Singapore and, as such, we bring practical experience and commercial acumen to our advice. A full service “cradle to grave” practice, our experienced maritime lawyers offer years of experience in charterparty, contract of affreightment and bill of lading disputes, commodity trading, and other maritime contracts. This expertise extends to litigation in the Singapore courts and before arbitration forums. With deep expertise in maritime casualties – from vessel sinkings and groundings to major ocean pollution – we have long been recognized as the go-to team for rapid advice and action and our shipping lawyers are part of the Ince & Co Emergency response team which is well known for its swift action and results under challenging conditions. In cases involving maritime casualties or oil/chemical spills, we deal with casualty, pollution and salvage issues on behalf of ship owners, charterers, protection and indemnity insurers, and hull underwriters. We are also experienced in government and maritime security, as well as marine transport regulatory issues such as intermodal transportation and terminals.
For many of our shipping matters, we work closely with the Ince & Co shipping team. Together, we regularly advise on transactions involving cargoes such as oil, LNG and LPG. We can bring you extensive experience in preparation and negotiation of purchase and sale contracts, charter parties and contracts of affreightment, as well as associated regulatory aspects. We have assisted in the development of deep water ports and liquefaction and regasification terminals, as well as structuring LNG transportation arrangements.
