Over a decade now Legal Steps is practicing Admiralty Law in various capacities. Initially we used to defend the interest of the owner only however for sometimes now we are also defending interest of the other parties. For the owner's side we have successfully defended claims by the crew and master of the vessel. We also protected owners interest against claims by shipping agent, supplier etc.
We arrested various ships against various claims such as short landing of goods etc.
