SHIP ARREST ATTORNEY IN MARSEILLE
Laurianne RIBES>, Esq., Attorney at the Bar of Marseille, will assist you with any procedures of preventive arrests and writs of execution of ships with her high reactivity and 10 solid years of experience in Maritime Law.
Due to the mobility of ships and to the frequent use of one-ship companies registered under exotic flags, seizing a ship is sometimes the only way to guarantee a debt against a ship or its owner or charter company.
Indeed, in order to secure a maritime debt, a creditor can be allowed to preventively seize a ship that belongs to the debtor or was chartered to the debtor.
Preventive ship arrest in French ports is a complex procedure that prevents the departure of the ship. It is either governed by the Code of Transportation or by international conventions.
The implementation of a preventive arrest requires high reactivity from the Attorney as it must come into effect before the ship leaves its French port of call.
The ship arrest must be authorized by an order on a motion issued by the Judge of the competent jurisdiction. The arrest can then be organized with the Court Bailliff; it is also reported to the port authority.
