International Maritime / Yacht Services Law Firm

Although purchasing a new yacht or a private aircraft may allow you to write off the interest payments on your “second home,” hiring a real estate attorney to conduct the transaction may not work out in your favor. The fact is, many attorneys are not familiar with maritime law. The unique challenges inherent in this field of law demand the skills of a lawyer who is as dedicated to maritime and aviation interests as you are.
