Admiralty & Maritime

With over 30 years of experience in admiralty and maritime law, our attorneys represent many of the largest companies in the maritime industry in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world. Most of our admiralty & maritime attorneys are located in Houston where many offshore drilling, exploration, and service companies are headquartered. Houston is also the home of the Port of Houston which is ranked first in the United States in foreign waterborne commerce, second in total tonnage, and eighth in the world in size.

Clark Hill attorneys regularly represent owners, operators, and charterers of freighters, tankers, tugs, barges, supply boats, offshore drilling rigs/vessels, offshore platforms, and vessels engaged in oceanographic/seismic research, and other oil field services.

The firm’s attorneys also represent companies and individuals engaged in brown water activities, such as offshore exploration, pipeline construction, commercial diving, supply boat services, and many other maritime energy activities.

Clark Hill’s admiralty and maritime team also represents a variety of multi-national blue water business concerns, including shipyards, manufacturers, sellers, purchasers, transporters, and insurers of waterborne products.
