Seward & Kissel

Profile

71% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water.  Only one law firm can cover it all by providing “one-stop shopping” for all matters maritime.

Seward & Kissel enjoys a global reputation as the “go to” U.S. law firm in the maritime arena.  Our more than 50 attorneys in the maritime practice in the U.S. serve as trusted advisors to many of the world’s most notable public and private maritime companies, financial institutions and other industry participants in the areas of banking and finance, capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, restructuring and insolvency, tax, litigation and regulatory, and have handled many of the world’s biggest, most complex and innovative transactions in the U.S. and around the globe. 

From the restructurings and bankruptcies of the 1980s, through the boom and bust of the high-yield market in the late 1990s and early 2000s; from the flourishing loan and public offering markets in the mid-2000s to the most recent foreclosures, restructurings and industry consolidations, Seward & Kissel has been involved every step of the way. 

Our practice and lawyers are consistently recognized as market leaders by Chambers & Partners, Legal 500, Lloyd’s and other publications, and we pride ourselves in being the preeminent U.S. maritime law firm with the substantive expertise, market-setting experience and manpower to handle any matters that the future may hold for the maritime industry.
