Ship arrest cases in the Baltic region are extremely rare. We are proud to assist with the most ship arrests in Latvia. In a recent case, we provided consultation to a leading bunkering service provider in the Baltic Sea region in an urgent ship arrest dispute with the shipowners. During this time, the vessel was docked in Estonia. The dispute involves several legal issues, such as the existence and transfer of maritime claims, suspension of the limitation period, grounds for repeated vessel arrest, and liability for wrongful arrest.

Our most experienced maritime law professionals, partner Valts Nerets and associate Artūrs Kazāks, are representing the client.
