The firm is quicker, more knowledgeable and more efficient than many of its peers.
Renowned worldwide for its specialist maritime expertise since 1911, Constant & Constant merged with TLT in 2007 to enhance the dynamic and innovative service we provide to the ship finance, commercial shipping and superyacht sectors.
We advise on the full range of finance and commercial issues involving a diverse range of vessels traded worldwide, from tankers to dry bulk carriers to the latest LNG ships, and from luxury yachts to the largest superyachts (in excess of £100 million).
Operating out of our London and Piraeus offices (which provides ship finance advice under the Constant & Constant name), we act for clients in finance, shipping and superyacht business. This includes banks and financial institutions, owners, charterers, builders, brokers, insurers, ports/marinas and governments. We advise on a full range of international shipping and superyacht issues; finance and acquisition transactions, operating and trading and dispute resolution.
We specialise in the drafting and negotiation of loan and security documentation such as mortgages, assignment of newbuilding contracts and refund guarantees, long term charters and leasing arrangements. We are also experienced in the negotiation and interpretation of newbuilding contracts, sale and purchase, charterparties, bills of lading, marine insurance, marine regulation, as well as cooperation agreements and competition issues.
We advise on the resolution of disputes whether by negotiation, mediation, arbitration or court proceedings, and are able to obtain freezing injunctions and arrest vessels worldwide at short notice.
Accessible when needed, we aim to give clear, cost effective and commercial advice on where clients stand and how to achieve the best result. We provide regular updates on issues relevant to the ship finance, commercial shipping and superyacht sectors.
