Vessel Transactions & Litigation

Most vessel transactions conducted today are done through the use of contracts. A contract is a binding agreement between two parties that sets terms for the transaction, including price, delivery and quantity of items to be sold. It is essential to know what to do if you entered a contract and things haven’t turned out the way you expected.

The attorneys at Stroup & Martin, P.A. in Fort Lauderdale have 50 years of combined experience handling marine contract cases for clients in Florida and can provide you with the knowledgeable assistance you need to sue and the skills you need to win.
