Maritime Law


For the past 40 years Junge & Mele and its predecessor firms have successfully represented  many of the largest maritime companies in the world,  both in litigation and transactional matters. Our clients include domestic and international shipping companies, cruise lines, marine terminal operators, ocean transportation intermediaries, P & I Clubs and shipping trade associations.  We are specialists in Jones Act defense, cargo claims, passenger claims, maritime arbitrations, marine casualty investigations, and charter party disputes.  The Firm is  particularly gratified to have made significant contributions to admiralty jurisprudence in nearly all these practice areas.
