Campbells has developed, over several decades, a well-established and leading offshore practice in the acquisition, registration, operation and financing of ships, yachts and aircraft. This practice began in the Cayman Islands and has evolved, as has our offering, to also meet the needs of our clients in relation to matters of British Virgin Islands, Liberian (maritime and corporate) and Marshall Islands laws. Campbells is the only offshore law firm that has licensed Marshall Islands legal counsel and which can advise, without reservation, on matters of Marshall Islands law.
Commercial and practical, as well as very knowledgeable about the relevant aspects of the law.
We advise some of the world’s principal shipping companies, airlines, financial institutions and lessors. We have considerable expertise in all areas of asset finance, specialising in securitisation transactions and ship and aircraft financing (involving the establishment of special purpose offshore companies and other vehicles, such as exempted limited partnerships).
Our lawyers are at the forefront of shipping industry developments and have assisted with revisions to the Cayman Islands Merchant Shipping Law. We have partners who are members of the Maritime Sector Consultative Committee and who have previously sat on the Board of the Maritime Authority of the Cayman Islands (MACI).
Please do reach out to any of our key contacts should you wish to discuss matters further or if you have queries in relation to the laws of the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Liberia (maritime and corporate) or the Marshall Islands.
