Maritime and Transport law

Vinge is one of Sweden’s leading law firms in the field of maritime law and has a long tradition of advising enterprises within the maritime and transport industries.

We provide advice in relation to all issues which arise in the industry. In addition to traditional maritime and transport law issues, we also provide advice concerning regulatory issues, competition law, maritime aid and tax issues. In addition we have extensive experience of legal issues in connection with collisions and other incidents at sea.

We advise both Swedish and international clients, for example ferry companies, banks, insurance companies, management companies and different suppliers within the transport industry. We also advise Swedish and foreign import and export companies in relation to issues concerning transports and international trade.

Due to our considerable experience and detailed knowledge we also contribute to the development of the statutory framework governing the field of transport law. Among other things, our specialists are members of Swedish and international maritime organisations and often act as arbitrators in relation to maritime and transportation disputes.
