Guy Walker Professional Negilgence

Maritime Law

High Street lawyers are all very well, but they may not be much use when you make your living at sea or spend a lot of your leisure time on the water.

That’s why people have been turning to us at Nash & Co Solicitors for decades, knowing that we have the expertise, the experience and the contacts to help them with everything from buying a boat to defending them in court after a death at sea.

We offer London levels of expertise at regional rates, and a round-the-clock response if you’re involved in an emergency – a service that helps us find first-hand evidence for you and give you advice and support in difficult circumstances.

With dedicated marine lawyers, yacht owners, and a former MMO Fisheries Officer among our crew, we can deal with everything the sea and the law can throw at you – whether you’ve been boarded and accused of fishing offences, or blamed for a collision, an accident, or a pollution incident.

We advise the fishing industry, harbour commissioners, shipping companies, boat owners, marine insurers, port authorities, marina operators, racing sailors and high-net-worth individuals with superyachts – but the one thing they have in common is that they appreciate our approachability, our professionalism, and our understanding of their world.

They trust us to handle issues ranging from marine mortgages and dispute resolution to collisions and professional negligence claims – all backed by our membership of the British Marine Federation, Maritime Plymouth, and South Devon Marine.

In 2016, Legal 500 said:

Nash & Co stands out for its ‘perfect knowledge of fishing vessel activities and European legislation’. Senior partner Guy Walker acts for harbour authorities, yacht brokers, P&I clubs and marine insurers.

In 2014 it stated: The ‘receptive’ Guy Walker leads the niche team at Nash & Co, which has particular strength in the fishing industry.

Whatever the issue you’re facing, we can help you deal with it – quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. So if you’d like to test the water, give us a call now on 01752 664444 or e-mail us at
