Maritime & Shipping

A variety of legal issues arise for clients involved in the shipping and maritime industry. Due to its network of international offices, Miranda is uniquely well equipped among Portuguese law firms to understand and deal with the multi-jurisdictional issues that are relevant to the shipping industry. Our practice covers the full range of merchant marine and offshore activity – from conventional cargo ships to tankers, LNG/LPG carriers, FPSOs and other specialist vessels. The breadth of our activity in the offshore oil industry has been a key factor in the development of our shipping practice.
