Ampersand is widely recognised as a leading set for Shipping matters in Scotland.

We offer the full range of advice and litigation services of maritime law. With specialist counsel at both senior and junior level, we can offer a pragmatic and quick service, as these cases often require.

Our expertise across marine and transport matters include contract disputes, incidents, ship arrestments, industry regulatory matters and inquiries. Our members act for international organisations including owners and charterers, Protection & Indemnity Clubs, banks, underwriters, port authorities and the Scottish and UK Governments. A number of our members were involved in the significant “Braer” oil tanker litigations.
