Joseph & Partners Maritime Dispute Resolution Practice in Malaysia advises shipowners, charterers, P&I clubs, insurers, forwarders, shipping agents, consignors, and cargo companies, both domestically and abroad, on various disputes which may arise in maritime matters.
The increasing volume of goods being transported by sea has eventually contributed to increased commercial disputes, with maritime arbitration emerging as the preferred method for dispute resolution. Maritime arbitration is currently striving to strike a judicious balance between ensuring strict compliance with relevant mandatory laws and rules and maintaining autonomy among contracting parties. Malaysia has strong maritime traditions and continues to play a strategic role in the development of international carriage of goods by sea and maritime dispute resolution. It is not unusual for the parties to a maritime contract to have a dispute, such as a towage agreement or a vessel charter. Disputes arising from maritime activities are often the result of maritime claims. Like storms at sea, disputes and litigation can be as hazardous as they are unexpected in the shipping and maritime industries.
