Our Services

The increasing complexity of legal disputes means that in-house legal departments are overburdened and those without in-house expertise, particularly small and specialist operators, are concerned about increasing costs. At CTRL, we recognise these difficulties and can offer claims and legal services at rates which compare favourably with other shipping law firms.


We advise on a wide range of English law shipping and marine insurance related claims and disputes, such as:

  • Charterparties
  • Cargo claims and contracts of carriage
  • Shipbuilding contracts
  • Ship sale and purchase Memoranda of Agreement
  • Shipmanagement contracts
  • Offshore supply vessels and structures
  • Enforcement of court judgments and arbitration awards

The CTRL Claims & Legal team is led by Helen McCormick. Helen is an experienced litigator dealing with a range of dry shipping disputes. Her particular focus is on offshore contracts, workboats and small and specialist operations.

As a part of CJC, CTRL’s clients also have access to the full range of services offered by CJC. CJC is a full-service shipping law firm covering all aspects of shipping, including corporate, transactional and finance work, marine casualty handling and investigation, shipping litigation, marine insurance and international trade.
