Ship arrest is a crucial weapon in the armoury of disputants seeking to protect their commercial interests in maritime disputes. We can help you to protect your commercial interests and to proceed to ship arrest.
Achour Law Firm has significant experience in ship arrest in Tunisia.
A ship arrest in particular is not just a measure to secure the presence of the vessel at a later stage, where a judgment against the owner or the vessel is to be enforced through a forced sale of the vessel. A ship arrest can be the fastest, cheapest and most effective measure in obtaining voluntary payment of an outstanding claim against the vessel or the owner (as the case may be), provided that the measure of the ship arrest – in a legal and commercial sense – is used correctly.
Achour law firm is specialised in not only executing an arrest, but also in providing the best commercial and legal strategy prior to and in connection with the ship arrest; whether that would be to abstain from arresting the vessel in the next port of call, to arrest aggressively in any port of call or to abstain from arresting the vessel and instead arrest bunkers and other stores on board the vessel.
Achour law firm is available on a moment’s notice to assist in vessel arrest actions. Indeed, immediate lawyer availability is often crucial when it comes to vessel arrests since a vessel can quickly leave a jurisdiction, never to return again. We can also assist in posting bond if one of your vessels has been arrested by someone else. Because Achour Law Firm is already well-versed in the substantive law and procedure concerning vessel arrests, you will never waste valuable time.
Achour Law firm 24-hours Arrest and Casualty Emergency Response secure that no time is lost once an opportunity to arrest a vessel emerges.
