At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
This area of law often brings with it questions of an international nature. As well as dealing with UK legal issues we can call on our membership of Interlaw to get access to lawyers worldwide to help you deal with any foreign legal questions.
Clear advice on shipping and aviation law
Our lawyers are experts in this area and will provide you with clear and comprehensive advice. We understand the time pressures you may face and will provide our advice quickly.
Benefits we bring
We have experience in a wide range of shipping and aviation transactions. We're well known in the UK marine finance sector and act for many major financial institutions so we have knowledge of current market practice. We negotiate the terms of commercial contracts dealing with the construction, sale and purchase, operation, management and charter of vessels and aircraft.
Our litigation team deals with a variety of disputes including loss of life/accident at sea; shipbuilding contract disputes; accidents and enquiries; and recovery of possession and arrears.
Our combination of knowledge and experience allows us to focus on any legal issue your business has in this sector.
Our approach to fees
We compete comfortably with City of London firms in terms of value for money and quality of work at the costs appropriate to where our offices are. Where we offer a fixed fee we stand by that fee.
