Jones Walker joins IRPT

Jones Walker: Jones Walker’s maritime attorneys provide cross-spectrum transactional, regulatory, and dispute-resolution counsel to domestic and international clients in foreign jurisdictions and across the United States, in state and federal courts, and before US and international arbitral bodies.

In the transactional arena, we have extensive experience in the drafting and negotiation of marine contracts, vessel acquisitions, financings, and flagging, as well as in maritime lien enforcement, foreclosures, and bankruptcies. Our regulatory work ranges from securing permits from the US Army Corps of Engineers to US Customs seizures, classification disputes, convention and treaty analysis, immigration matters, and Outer Continental Shelf exemptions. We regularly represent the interests of individual clients and industry associations before lawmakers and regulators, helping strengthen the voice of maritime companies in the development of relevant laws and regulations.
