Civil engineering contractors

Increasingly in demand, civil engineering contractors can be in a precarious position, operating in coastal waters where risks can suddenly take on a new and unexpected dimension.

Marine services contracts are very different to the land-based contracts you may be used to – regulations, allocation of losses, limitation of liability and insurance needs are among the factors that are unlike their land-based equivalents.

Marine law is also very different. That’s where TugAdvise consultants are experts, bringing a wealth of experience in the industry. We have people who are trained as naval architects, former surveyors and engineers and others who have operated vessels at sea.

They all have experience, in practice, of what can go wrong – and how best to deal with the legal ramifications.
