LAWYER – Maritime and fluvial law

Maritime and fluvial law is a body of law that governs nautical issues and private maritime disputes. In fact, Maritime law consists of both domestic law on maritime activities, and private international law governing the relationships between private parties operating or using ocean-going ships. Also, the international nature of the topic and the need for uniformity has, since 1900, led to considerable international maritime law developments, including numerous multilateral treaties.
