We know that there are very few solicitor/ law firms in our country practicing admiralty, shipping and maritime more particularly ship arrest or release, we understand this sector is complex and very technical owing to the possibility of wrongful arrest for any mistake whilst strategising arrest, therefore one simply cannot ignore to engage the best or a specialist in this sector.
If you have a claim or a dispute by which admiralty jurisdiction can be invoked to arrest a ship in India please feel free to email, write or call us to check if admiralty jurisdiction can be invoked. You may also check with us if you intend arresting a ship outside India.
