Commercial & Corporate
Our corporate and commercial advisory work is an extension of our maritime practice and includes:
- Commodity sale and purchase contracts
- Contractual disputes
- Cross-border commercial disputes
- Employment issues
- Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation and Commissioning Contracts
- Joint venture, partnership and shareholders agreements
- Review of contracts, risk and liability assessment
Trite as it often sounds, prevention is better than cure. An important part of our business is to help our clients with business and contractual advice to start them on the right footing so that disputes can be minimised, if not avoided.
We do not believe in just doing piecemeal work. Being a one-stop shop for all areas of legal work for our clients enables us to have a helicopter view of their business, legal risks and liability. Our experience in dispute resolution enables us to assess standard contract wording with a more critical and pragmatic eye.
We also advise on various aspects of companies law, general corporate secretarial practices and other areas of general corporate legal work as required by our clients. We also assist our clients when they require advice and assistance on listings, mergers and acquisitions, takeovers and corporate due diligence.
We are able to assist in the drafting, reviewing and negotiations in connection with shareholders’ agreements, joint venture agreements, consultancy agreements, employment agreements, service agreements, engineering procurement construction and installation (EPCI) contracts, among others, which are frequently used in the shipping, oil and gas businesses.
