Exercising liens

We were retained to assist ship operators and their lawyers in their attempt to exercise difficult liens for unpaid hire and the costs of discharging cargoes in the Middle East and the EU. The lawyers acted to protect the ship owners’ formal positions; we supported these actions on the front line and provided a channel for informal discussions and without prejudice negotiations that enabled the ship operators and the lawyers to keep their powder dry.
