Maritime Risk Management
The maritime industry is dangerous. Everyone is fully aware of the many dangers faced by a ship’s crew and the great level of responsibility and precautions a shipowner must take in order to implement policies or take actions that reduce marine casualties. Every lawyer can make suggestions or guide shipowners in managing their risks, but not everyone can advise clients from a standpoint of the crew. HBN’s attorneys are not only lawyers, some are Merchant Mariners or USCG veterans with a complex understanding of the inner workings of various vessels. Because of this HBN attorneys are able to advise, review, and draft policies and assist clients in risk management onboard their ships and at their waterfront facilities.
