OSV operators

Offshore support vessel operators often work in politically complicated places, using sophisticated equipment. The investment is massive but they can command high daily rates and may be employed under complex charterparties.

We’re specialists in sale and purchase contracts, new-build contracts and offshore and marine service contracts, including SUPPLYTIME. And our experience means we can go beyond the legal niceties to bring an in-depth understanding of day-to-day charterparty issues, knock-for-knock, the underlying insurance background and the commercial realities of OSV operators and their clients.

Our highly experienced casualty lawyers and consultants, most of whom have seagoing backgrounds (including engineering), can work with you and your insurers in a crisis.

We also have a former naval architect who trained as a class surveyor with new-build experience in the Far East. So when it comes to dealing with shipyard or complex technical issues, we offer more than just an understanding of the law. You’ll be glad they’re on your side of the table.
