Vigorously Defending The Interests Of Maritime Operators

Accident claim cases are often won not in court, but during the case preparation phase. Our maritime attorneys act promptly to investigate maritime accident cases to determine how they occurred and to assess the potential liability of our clients. We have access to a nationwide network of experts in various aspects of maritime operations who can support these efforts. These specialists can provide key insights into issues of causation, and if necessary, expert testimony in court. When representing your company, Davidson Meaux will work diligently to protect your rights and interests, limit your liability and obtain the best possible result.

Davidson Meaux also provides advice and services to ship owners, maritime operators, maritime suppliers and other parties in general business law matters.
