Our lawyers have gone on board Vessels to obtain statements from the seafarers on board vessels and work in close coordination with surveyors and port state control authorities. We are presently involved in a trial in a mass tort litigation on behalf of fishermen affected by the oil spill emanating from the MSC Chitra. We have also undertaken pro bono work in advising various government agencies and regulatory authorities in responding to a marine casualty.
