Whilst Gibraltar boasts a large number of law firms, there are very few which have a specialist Admiralty Department. Of these, ISOLAS have more years experience than any other firm which makes us the number one choice for shipping lawyers in Gibraltar.

Our marine lawyers advise our clients on all shipping related issues from marine insurance, cargo claims and piracy to maritime casualties and commercial disputes over shipping contracts. Our shipping law practice assists ship and superyacht owners, ship insurers and brokers, port authorities, banks and others within the maritime sector with a full range of shipping legal services.   

Ship Arrest Lawyers in Gibraltar

ISOLAS is one of the leading firms of ship arrest lawyers in Gibraltar which, in turn, is one of the premier ship arrest jurisdictions in the world as a result of its geographical location and use of English admiralty law and practice. Given the provisions of the law, not only can vessels be arrested in Gibraltar, but also, in certain cases, cargo and/or freight.

When instructed to carry out an arrest, we advise our Clients as to exactly what documentation will need to be provided in support of the application to conduct the ship arrest and will guide the Client towards the necessary steps mandatory to protect their claim, leading up to, if required, an eventual sale of the vessel.

Credit to our experience and expertise in Admiralty matters is the fact that we are continuously involved in the great majority of shipping disputes, as well as receiving instructions from many of the major London shipping law firms. 

Our specialist shipping lawyers keep on top of the latest issues affecting the sector and contribute to industry bodies.
