Admiralty + Maritime Law

Kent/McBride Admiralty/Maritime attorneys have a specialized practice that ranges from representing large companies to individuals involved in the commercial and the recreational maritime industry in both State and Federal Courts.  Our attorneys have experience representing boat owners, marinas, and the companies that insure them. We have represented the owners of large ocean-going vessels and the individuals and groups that charter large vessels.  We have also worked with the companies that insure large vessels with hull insurance and through protection and indemnity coverage. The challenges posed in this particular litigation arena are different than those found in other areas of the law.  When faced with them the firm’s clients avail themselves of our attorneys’ familiarity with the unique legal issues that arise when a personal injury or wrongful death occurs in a traditional maritime setting including recreational boaters, seamen, and cruise ship passengers.
