Boating, Passenger Vessels, and Cruise Lines

Our attorneys have a deep understanding of admiralty and maritime law on the Great Lakes. We are able to navigate the unique legal waters on behalf of boaters, passenger vessel owners, and cruise line operators. We defend watercraft owners facing series marine casualties, including boater injury and death, and advise ferry services and cruise lines on matters involving crew liability, employee injury or death, contractual disputes, and third-party claims for personal injury and property damage. Our attorneys also represent marine facilities, such as marinas, yacht clubs, and marine service providers in personal injury and property damage claims. From national and international cruise lines, to local and regional passenger and specialty vessels, to individual boaters, Gallagher Sharp’s admiralty and maritime practice extends to all aspects of maritime life on the Great Lakes.
