Major & Grove is a Piraeus-based law firm specializing in shipping law, offering comprehensive legal services to both domestic and international clients within the global maritime industry. While our core expertise lies in maritime, corporate, transactional, and commercial matters, we also provide legal support on an extensive array of other areas including tax, real estate and private clients.
Our firm leverages the significant expertise of our Partners, who have held key roles in influential maritime institutions, leading shipping companies, and prominent law firms. Their profound understanding of the shipping industry, its stakeholders, and dynamics guides our expanding team of selected associates and trainee lawyers, enabling us to deliver top-tier legal support across a broad range of practice areas.
We comprehensively and efficiently represent our clients in sale and purchase transactions, from handling negotiations and drafting documentation, to attending delivery and registration of vessels under Greek or foreign flags. Furthermore, we advise on, negotiate and draft shipbuilding contracts, charterparties and management agreements while we are equally experienced in all aspects of ship and project financing, liaising with financial institutions and drafting and reviewing loan and security documentation.
Our practice further extends to shipping litigation and dispute resolution, including ship arrests, handling end-to-end arbitration procedures and wet and dry claims as well as coordinating complex cross-jurisdictional disputes.
We are committed to covering our clients’ legal needs on all areas of corporate and commercial law, offering services that range from the establishment of corporate entities in various jurisdictions, setting up of corporate vehicles, subsidiaries, and branch offices of foreign corporations in Greece, to planning complex corporate structures, joint ventures, and drafting shareholder agreements. We also tailor tax planning strategies to meet our clients’ specific needs and guide them towards meeting the increasingly demanding needs of corporate governance, compliance with regulatory framework and KYC requirements.
Our core practice areas also include tax, civil and commercial litigation, civil law, administrative law, real estate, employment law, social security, immigration, and private client services.
At Major & Grove we prioritize high efficiency, accessibility, and responsiveness in order to provide personalized, tailored advice and to promptly and effectively meet our clients’ needs. We are committed to fostering long-term relationships with our clients, built on mutual trust and a deep understanding of their unique operations and objectives.
