Astrea advises Belgian and foreign companies in the area of maritime and transport law. Our services are aimed at both cargo interests and ship interests, as well as intermediaries such as shipping agents and stevedores.
We have amassed considerable experience in cases involving cargo damage, collisions and general average, ship leasing, seizure of ocean-going vessels and maritime appraisals. Our services include the giving of advice and the settlement of disputes before the courts.
Several lawyers in the Astrea team have received specific training in maritime law or completed internships at specialist foreign law firms. Because we combine our expertise in transport law with our experience in a variety of commercial law files, we can ensure a precise, practical approach, tailored to your file. In this area, efficiency, approachability and flexibility are our watchwords.
Our firm has access to an extensive international network and has worked on a range of maritime and transport law files in collaboration with specialist firms in key locations such as London, Hamburg, Singapore and Hong Kong.
