Bartons marine department has developed a reputation as a niche practice meeting the diverse needs of the industry.

Our clients range from UK and international marine insurers, P & I clubs, ship owners and operators to yacht clubs, local ports and harbours, marine related businesses and the fishing industry.

For contentious issues, we are fully committed to helping you resolve your dispute/claim using alternative dispute resolution and mediation as preferred methods. We are experienced in dealing in international law.

For non-contentious issues we can provide a complete package of marine services, including advice on everything from purchase and registration to crew issues.

We have close links with the marine and shipping industries and play an active role in the British Marine Federation.

Our marine advocacy department deals with both the defence of criminal acts, including prosecutions brought by the MCA and MMO, and prosecuting for fisheries offences.

Lee Hassall of Bartons is viewed as one of the pre-eminent personal injury and yacht lawyers outside of London. Sources say he is "sensible, thoughtful and easy to deal with”
