About us

TugAdvise has a single focus – to provide legal advice to all of you in the tug and offshore support vessel sectors, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.

We really are specialists with a genuine passion for shipping and the experience to get to the heart of your issues fast. Our people are industry leaders, including senior lawyers and consultants from leading London firms.

They handle your case personally, guiding you from the moment you pick up the phone until we reach a satisfactory conclusion. We want you to feel free to call us at any time, whether you need to discuss an urgent issue, talk through a long-term project or kick around your strategy for making the most of an opportunity or dealing with a problem.

We know that our business must work for your business. We have worked in your industry for over 40 years. We use that experience to resolve issues rapidly, wherever possible, saving you both time and money.

We can also tailor our services to suit you – for example, a hotline service for regular quick advice, a retainer, or a fixed price for one-off projects.

Tugadvise is an industry focussed advisory service provided by specialist London lawyers Tatham & Co. It’s a five star service that puts you in touch with the best brains in marine law and helps you to make the best-informed business decisions, reduce risk, save management time and cost.
