fishing-boat1Based in the South West, we’re at the heart of the fishing community and its daily challenges.   As qualified commercial fishermen and experienced fishing lawyers, we see things from a different perspective.

Our experience is hands-on. As well as the team’s individual training, Director Lee Hassall has undertaken two fishing expeditions, working alongside crew on a 50m Norwegian long-liner in the Barents Sea and as a deck hand on board a Brixham scalloper.  As a Director of  BMF South West, Lee is also helping to develop new apprenticeship courses for the fishing industry.

Thanks to our sea based experience and training, we get to the heart of the matter when it comes to issues like on-board accidents, collisions and quota allocation.  Or putting in place crew agreements that work in reality.

And because your industry is our business, we’re fully up to date on the constantly changing laws, the impact of MMO and DEFRA decisions and the changing nature of European legislation, which we have challenged at the highest level.

Our experience spans industrial accidents including investigations by the MAIB, prosecutions by the MCA and the Health and Safety Executive and representation at the Coroner’s Court.

We also provide specialist advice and assistance in buying and selling fishing vessels, transferring quote, Fixed Quote Allocations and licences. .

Our clients include individual skippers, fleet owning companies and various fishing associations.
