Maritime Litigation

The economy of the Gulf Coast is fueled by the offshore drilling and maritime activities that are so essential to the Coast’s survival. Unfortunately, that commerce can often harm those actors who animate it, whether in a physical or an economic manner.

Smith & Fawer attorneys are attuned to the particular challenges maritime litigation presents and have litigated cases involving the following:

  • Successful representation of a local bulk liquid terminal facility in a complex environmental suit;
  • Successful representation of Jones Act claimants for severe personal injuries suffered on the job;
  • Successful representation of corporations and insurers in blow-out litigation;
  • Multi-million dollar recovery for a local offshore vessel company in vessel construction dispute.
