Shipping

Our Legal 500 top ranked shipping team works closely with a broad network of shipping contacts (such as ship managers, owners, shipyards, banks and service providers) not just on the Island, but in all of the principal global shipping markets and have extensive experience of cross border shipping transactions. Our lawyers have established a reputation as leading advisers in this field on the Isle of Man.

The Isle of Man Ship Registry provides a modern, international register. The Isle of Man Register, whilst independent, forms part of the British Register and accordingly its registered ships have the advantage of being able to fly the “Red Ensign”. The Isle of Man Registry takes pride in its high standards, flexibility and quality of service. Its services are provided at very competitive costs and no annual tonnage dues are levied.

DQ’s shipping team has extensive experience of advising on the financing of new builds, purchases and the preparation, registration and enforcement of related security documents.
