Shipping Law

Narlex provides legal services mainly to ship-owners, insurance companies and cargo owners. Partner Andres Vinkel has represented ship-owners in various disputes, including a major oil spill case, which resulted in the pollution of the shores of Estonia in 2001. European service and supplies providers utilise our services when Estonian managers fail to fulfil their obligations.

Prior to establishing Narlex, Andres Vinkel provided legal services to a large Estonian cargo port.

Ship arrests in Estonia are possible, although usually require a financial deposit to the bank account of the government.

Narlex can also assist you in the registration of ships under the Estonian flag.

Andres Vinkel is the supporting member of London Maritime Arbiters Association (LMAA).
