Admiralty & Shipping
Cyprus is an established international maritime centre for nearly half a century and is getting all the more attractive over the years. Effective administration, robust infrastructure and an unambiguous legislative framework have laid the foundations for the island to become one of the world’s leading countries in registered merchant fleet and a global magnet for renowned ship management companies. No factor is more decisive to this success story than the know-how of the people in the industry.
Our firm’s Admiralty and Shipping team consists of experienced commercial and litigation lawyers who can assist clients involved in the shipping industry by offering legal advice and other ancillary services. We take pride in the fact that our firm has a long tradition and a lasting experience in this domain. Polakis Sarris & Co LLC offers a complete range of shipping services to a respectable clientele of ship owners, ship managers and ship charterers from around the world; from incorporating shipping companies to registry transactions and from ship financing to admiralty-related disputes.
The team’s experience includes, inter alia, advising on charter party disputes, the carriage of goods by sea and cargo claims, marine insurance, disputes under shipbuilding and repairing contracts and personal injury claims, as well as representing clients before the Admiralty Court. Where admiralty litigation issues are concerned, our firm undertakes claims such as those of cargo owners against the ship and salvors in salvage actions. Our firm also represents ship owners in collision and charterparty and bill of lading disputes.
