About

Safe Passage

Shipping remains the most important means of moving commodities and goods around the world. With nearly 95 percent of cargo imported to the United States moving through seaports, maritime law—directly or indirectly—affects businesses around the world. Increased volatility in global trade; rising energy costs; tightening environmental regulations; developing automation of ships and operations; and the threat of piracy, terrorism, and state acts against vessels have converged to make this industry change course dramatically.

Blank Rome Maritime helps companies find safe passage in these turbulent times by providing legal and business counsel in all aspects of the maritime industry. Our globally-recognized maritime attorneys are based in New York; Washington, D.C.; Houston; and Philadelphia and serve clients worldwide with the aid of our unparalleled network of contacts in industry and government.
