Our commercial shipping team has a wealth of experience in negotiating contracts the sale and purchase of second-hand ships and assisting clients our throughout the entire sale and delivery process, from initial negotiations to the closing. Our expertise in this field covers all vessel types and we are familiar with all the standard industry forms (Norwegian Saleform, Singapore Ship Sale Form, Nipponsale). In addition to working on the sale and purchase of trading vessels and offshore units, we are regularly involved with the increasingly regulated discipline of ship demolition and recycling.
The S&P team is led by Matt Hannaford, co-author of leading legal textbook, Ship Sale & Purchase and a member of the drafting committee for Norwegian Saleform 2012.
