As a coastal city and busy port, Galway has a long maritime tradition, and we at McInerney Solicitors have a personal and professional interest in all things maritime, including Maritime Law.
Shane Sheridan has a particular interest and background in the sea, which has led to him developing the practice area of Maritime Law at the firm. He regularly attends the International Maritime Lecturer’s Association Conferences and keeps up to date with legal maritime matters.
We deal with various aspects of Private and Public Maritime Law including
Maritime Insurance Claims (either commercial or personal)
Maritime Leisure Contracts, to include dealing with the relevant Government Departments, Statutory Bodies and Port Authorities
Insurance Disputes (including P&I Club),
Private Sales, Liens, and Mortgages of Vessels
Liaising and negotiating with Government Departments, Statutory Bodies, and Port Authorities
We can also advise on various statutes and International Conventions, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea
Personal Injuries litigation, either of passengers or crew
