Maritime attorneys

Bowman Gilfillan has more than 120 years of experience in the specialist field of maritime law. We operate from the ports of Cape Town and Port Elizabeth and have an intimate understanding of the unique aspects of the South African jurisdiction - one of the world's most favoured jurisdictions for the arrest of vessels.

The department is internationally recognised as offering leading expertise throughout all major South African ports. This reputation has been built on more than a century of experience, 24-hour availability and speed of response.

As in the case of the firm as a whole, the department represents a wide range of international and South African clients, including major shipowners, P & I Clubs, hull and cargo underwriters and banks involved in ship financing.
