Transport & Maritime Overview
SORAINEN is available to assist in a complex and commercially important area – transport and maritime law. Most of the work in the field of shipping and transport relates to disputes or commercial contracts, so that the work in the SORAINEN Transport & Maritime Practice is closely combined with the firm’s Dispute Resolution and Distribution & Trade Practices.
Operating in the Baltic Sea region as well as in transit territory, the firm’s Baltic-Belarusian lawyers offer a specific background and context, as well as an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the nature and operation of the transport and maritime fields.
