Joseph & Partners deals with all kinds of shipping issues, from disputes to commercial and contractual issues. Malaysia is one of the fastest growing economies in the ASEAN region and depends heavily on a rock of sound commercial laws to drive innovation and growth.
Agreements and structures that apply across the various business areas need to be both commercially sound and legally enforceable. Our lawyers understand regulatory frameworks and commercial contracts in the shipping industry. Our Commercial Practice has extensive knowledge and experience, managing a wide range of commercial matters on a regular basis across a broad spectrum of domestic and cross-border transactions. Our lawyers have the experience to support every legal aspect of operating a business in Malaysia from the initial establishment, licensing and industrial relations issues, occupational safety and health requirements, through to reorganizations and restructurings. Much of the commercial law relating to transport of goods by ships involves contractual agreements between the ship-owner and the party wishing to ship the goods. These agreements are however generally based on long-standing customs and business practices that are unique to the shipping industry.
We understand the legal and practical challenges surrounding international commercial transactions, and of the issues around regulation of commerce, navigation, and other activity on the seas. For more information, please get in touch with our lawyers through our Contact Us page.
