Keates Ferris is a specialist law firm advising on maritime, marine insurance and international trade law. Clients include shipowners and their insurers, salvors, charterers, commodity traders, exporters and importers of goods and large yacht owners and managers.

Our services are provided by lawyers, each of whom has a wealth of experience in his or her field. Three have seagoing experience. We pay careful attention to clients’ wishes as to how their legal services are delivered.

Our charges are competitive, tailored to the work in question and free from financial target pressures. We are always pleased to provide legal cost proposals for new work.

We are based in the City of London and Newcastle upon Tyne and are pleased to travel when required for casualty or other work.

We look forward to working with you.
