Maritime law is a legal system that applies to ships and their activities on them. The legal system for maritime activity varies from country to country, but many maritime jurisdictions have adopted an Admiralty system of law as their national legal system. Maritime law refers to all aspects of the legal regime governing shipping, including chartering vessels, arrest and detention of ships, salvage, pollution control, piracy prevention, and marine insurance. The main focus of maritime legal regulation is the safety of lives at sea. In most countries, there are separate laws relating to coastal navigation (which cover waterways) and international navigation, which covers open seas.

Maritime law covers a wide range of incidents, including personal injury, property damage, cargo loss, and collisions. Virtually any dispute that could arise on land could occur at sea, bringing maritime law into play. Maritime law applies to events that occur on cruise ships, yachts, fishing boats, barges, cargo ships, oil platforms, and commercial boats, to name a few. Maritime incidents occur every day. While maritime law covers some events that are large in scale, such as the sinking of the Titanic or, more recently, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, most maritime incidents occur on a much smaller scale and involve a few parties. The admiralty maritime attorneys at McLeod Brock are leaders in the maritime industry and have been representing individuals and entities for many years, addressing nearly every aspect of the maritime issue. Maritime matters require knowledge of international treaties, local laws, and court interpretations, as well as experience with the reporting process
