Charting the Course
The lawyers at McKasson & Klein are trained in maritime law and several are members of the U.S. Maritime Law Association.
We are located near the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, which allows our firm to act quickly in the event of a maritime emergency, such as an oil spill, vessel arrest or attachment, or personal injury, vessel or cargo damage investigation.
At least one lawyer in the firm can always be contacted by telephone at any time – day or night.
The firm has experience in maritime, customs and intermodal transport.
This includes Rule B attachments for security (property of the target defendant can include vessels, bunkers, containers or even money in bank accounts) and related asset searches, Rule C arrests for maritime liens, Rule D arrests to recover property, as well as charter party disputes and breach of maritime contracts, bunker disputes, and cargo damage and theft claims.
We also defend personal injury, collisions, products liability & navigation claims.
