McLeod Brock offers personalized legal representation to clients involved in admiralty and maritime incidents throughout the United States and has attorneys admitted to practice in Florida, California, New York, and Louisiana. The team represents businesses and individuals affected by marine casualty and property damages by first spearheading the investigations. Whether it was caused by a sinking, hurricane, construction defects, or collisions, the law firm gives the client a customized approach that best suits their case. They also protect the client’s interests by determining the party at fault and exploring the available avenues for recovery.
In addition, McLeod Brock Law has experienced attorneys focusing on yacht management and employment disputes. Regardless of the vessel size, vessel owners are more likely to experience a range of management and employee-related issues in their day-to-day operations. The law firm offers personalized and proactive legal services to solve yacht management, crew wage claims, and insurance coverage complications. They also provide risk assessment and avoidance, employee counseling, and other related services such as dispute resolution among the crew members.
The law firm also assists vessel owners and insurers in marine insurance cases — throughout the United States and the Caribbean. While the insurer and the vessel owner are expected to create a solid and long-lasting relationship, cutting corners, acting in bad faith, and failing to disclose specific details are common. Fortunately, the attorneys offer personalized services to each client, especially reviewing and analyzing coverage. Other offerings include representing clients’ interests in cargo insurance cases and offering claims reviews and audits.
Besides, McLeod Brock represents passengers, crew members, and cruise lines (small and large) in maritime personal injury and wrongful death cases. Like in land-based accidents, the claimant, through their attorney, must establish the at-fault party to qualify for compensation. Thanks to the law firm’s experience in representing clients in similar cases, they assist the client in determining who is responsible for the injuries.
The law firm also represents clients in vessel transactions and disputes arising from vessel sales. The team offers legal assistance from negotiations and inspections to drafting and signing sales agreements to protect the client’s interests. Also, they assist the client in charter parties, livery and rentals, broker disputes, and surveyor disputes. Other admiralty and maritime practice areas include representing clients in salvage-related cases, maritime product liability disputes, exoneration-related cases, and commercial maritime disputes.
