Maritime disputes are often hugely complex and frequently involve numerous parties, detailed contracts, unclear jurisdiction and extensive potential liabilities. In such critical matters, it is vital that you have a team you can trust manning the tiller. MG+M attorneys have decades of experience successfully litigating high-stakes maritime and marine casualty claims, as well as USCG administrative proceedings and maritime-related personal injury, wrongful death, commercial litigation and contracts, insurance practice and policy, and product liability claims. Operating from 14 offices in major US markets, we have represented clients in jurisdictions throughout the continental United States, Canada, Hawaii, the Caribbean and South America. Our team is prepared to offer you skilled legal representation from coast-to-coast and everywhere in between.
Deep knowledge of the maritime industry
With our specific and extensive backgrounds in marine, civil and criminal law, our team of maritime attorneys has a deep understanding of the nuances in maritime personal injury, commercial disputes and contracts, insurance practice and policy, USCG administrative hearings, and recreational boating accidents. Many of our maritime attorneys have backgrounds in criminal law via prosecutors’ offices and as public defenders, so we are uniquely qualified to represent crews in USCG Administrative hearings involving license suspension or revocation, as well as civil liability and criminal defense matters—and help clients avoid hearings altogether. We also consult on issues surrounding mariner liability insurance, including licensing, coverage, depositions, court proceedings, witness statements and responses to letters of warning notices.
MG+M has successfully represented clients throughout the maritime industry, including boat manufacturers, insurers, marine equipment manufacturers, shipyards, boat dealerships, yacht clubs and marinas, vessel owners, charterers, and operators, in all forms of maritime and marine casualty claims. MG+M attorneys are published thought leaders and professors of marine insurance law, Proctors of Admiralty certified by the Maritime Law Association of the United States, and members of respected organizations and trade groups focused on the maritime industry. This breadth of experience gives us unique insight into the constantly changing maritime laws and regulations, as well as the technical knowledge required to analyze and resolve maritime claims effectively.
Exceptional client service
MG+M is devoted to providing outstanding service to our clients. Our attorneys work to ensure transparency, communicating with you frequently and clearly about the status of your case, changes in tactics and strategy, and projected expenses. Our entire team is committed to acting in your best interest, not accruing courtroom or billable hours. Because MG+M attorneys know the impact litigation can have on your operations and bottom line, they treat every case as if their own livelihood is at stake.
