“A client asked whether
I am the only lawyer who
answers his own phone and always
is available. When people trust us
with their legal matters, part of our
job is to keep them informed.”

“ Trying cases is about
trust. I have to show
people they have reason to trust
me, so they will be more likely to
rule in my client’s favor.”

Operating in U.S. Ports

Doing business in U.S. ports presents a unique set of challenges including:

  • the power and authority of port districts and other government entities, including but not limited to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Coast Guard;
  • special requirements for the sale and leasing of public lands, river frontage and buildings for docks, terminals and processing facilities;
  • specialized doctrines and charges such as wharfage, a fee imposed by ports when goods move through their terminals; and
  • the interfaces between ships, barges, trucks, railroads and pipelines since all of them tend to converge in modern, multi-modal port facilities.

We help municipalities, shippers, carriers and terminal operators better understand and manage their legal obligations which, in turn, enables them to operate more efficiently and effectively in U.S. ports.
