Maritime trade and transport accounts for 75 per cent of major commercial merchandise transactions around the world. On the so-called ‘dry shipping’ side, maritime law relates to the use of the vessel through charter parties, bills of lading, and contracts of affreightment. Wet shipping relates to marine-specific concepts such as salvage or general average, as well as the law pertaining to accidents, collisions, towage and other misadventures. Fichte & Co’s highly skilled shipping department extends across the full range of maritime law, and it is considered the strongest related firm in the region.
At Fichte & Co, Managing Partner Jasamin Fichte leads a team that is ‘impeccable, in all areas.’ It handles an array of high-value claims for international clients and government entities.
