INDUSTRY EXPERTISE

 

 
 
The well-rounded professional background of our team is uniquely suited to advise institutional investors and passive owners about shipping. In the majority of the transactions that our firm has advised on or originated, they often provided industry expertise and logistical support by also working on to arrange vessel employment, vessel management (both commercial and technical), vessel inspections, liaising with charterers, ports and terminals, port agents and statutory or regulatory authorities. ​We have extensively consulted institutional investors, whether private equity or hedge funds, about shipping projects or companies they are evaluating or contemplating investing in.
 
Our services range from advising through scheduled telcons, report preparation on market segments, companies or individual shipowners, including due diligence and background information. We have advised investors in shipping for newbuilding, second-hand and demolition projects, for international registry tonnage and also American flag / Jones Act projects. Our services have covered the crude oil and petroleum product tankers, stainless steel tankers, containerships, dry bulk and offshore asset, including conversion projects for storage and offshore drilling. The scope of our engagements has ranged from projects in mainland China and Hong Kong, to Japan and South East Asia, to Greece, Germany, United Kingdom and the United States.
