Bech-Bruun samarbejde

Globaliseringen har længe været et grundvilkår inden for shipping, transport og logistik. Transportkunders krav om billig, sikker og rettidig levering skal opfyldes på et marked, der er præget af hastigt skiftende omkostninger, nye teknologier og en stadig tættere regulering.

Transport af gods er eksempelvis en kompliceret og ofte sammensat proces, der involverer mange aktører og risici for konflikt. Transportopgaverne foregår ofte mellem flere lande, og de regler, der regulerer dem, er derfor baseret på internationale konventioner. Derfor er ekspertrådgivning vigtig.

Hvordan kan vi hjælpe?
Vores team har et omfattende branchekendskab og mange års erfaring med at rådgive virksomheder inden for shipping, transport og logistik. Vi bistår inden for alle områder af sø- og transportretten og har spidskompetencer inden for international konfliktløsning. 

Vi rådgiver blandt andet om:

  • Konfliktløsning 
  • Konfliktløsningsklausuler, herunder lovvalg og værneting
  • Befragtningsaftaler
  • Salgs- og leveringsbetingelser
  • Forsikringsvilkår
  • Søforsikring og erstatningskrav
  • Kollision, grundstødning og bjærgning
  • Off shore-forhold
  • Maritime corporate omstruktureringer
  • Regulatoriske forhold
  • Konflikter med offentlige myndigheder.

Vi samarbejder med førende internationale transportadvokater og har et stort internationalt netværk. Vi kan derfor sikre den bedste rådgivning, uanset hvor i verden din virksomhed har brug for den – og hvor i forsyningskæden du befinder dig.
