What is Admiralty and Maritime Law?

Admiralty and Maritime Law is a complex area of law that arose from the days of antiquity…. it is an amalgamation of state, federal, and international law. Complex and ever-changing, maritime law is a body of private international law governing the relationships between private entities that operate vessels on the world's oceans.

Maritime law encompasses collisions, piracy, salvage, cargo losses, sinkings, groundings, and other matters that we typically think of when thinking of ships sailing on the high seas. However, maritime law also encompasses the recreational marine industry in matters involving boating accidents, warranty claims, salvage, and other maritime losses and claims. Lest we not forget the transactional side in matters involving purchase and sale transactions, chartering, vessel documentation and registration, as well as contractual disputes involving contractual and warranty issues.
