Our Republic of the Marshall Islands practice

We have one of the world’s largest Marshall Islands (RMI) practices and are able to serve clients operating across all time zones, particularly from our offices in New York, Hong Kong and Singapore.

We provide advice to clients incorporated in the RMI, as well as entities with RMI interests operating in the US, Europe, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East, particularly in relation to shipping transactions and disputes involving RMI-flagged vessels and entities. The RMI is one of the largest ship registries in the world and a growing number of business entities formed here are routinely used as corporate vehicles for shipping and non-shipping corporate activities.

Our lawyers have advised on some of the most complex and sophisticated RMI transactions in the market, including acquisitions, financings, registrations, enforcement, joint ventures and offerings, as well as on the formation, restructuring and mergers of offshore and domestic entities across various business sectors. Our RMI-qualified lawyers represent international financial institutions, funds-listed companies and vessel owners.
