Overview

9 Gough Chambers has a strong practice in shipping and maritime law. The team have particular expertise with marine accidents, including:

  • Passenger claims under the Athens Convention
  • Employer liability/Merchant Shipping regulations claims
  • Two-ship incidents
  • Offshore installations
  • Diving accidents
  • Pipelines

Our team is familiar with the often complex issues that can arise in such cases and regularly advise on matters relating to jurisdiction and limitation. Members regularly appear in the Admiralty Court and junior barristers are available to cover cases falling within the jurisdiction of the County Court.

Our barristers act for both claimants and defendants.  Some case examples include:

  • The cases arising from the 1989 Marchioness Disaster, including the Marchioness Steering Committee Costs Litigation
  • Braganza v BP Shipping Ltd & Anor [2015] UKSC 17)

The team has published a book on this niche area of law called “Work Accidents at Sea”, and this is being updated in 2015.
