The Gulf Coast is at the heart of America’s marine industry and host to two of the world’s busiest ports — New Orleans and Houston. With offices there and elsewhere in the region, Galloway can immediately respond to and advise clients on any maritime law issue. Our Marine Emergency Response Team provides immediate representation and counsel to investigate, produce evidence, and advise on any marine casualty.
Since its founding, Galloway has provided aggressive representation of companies in the blue and brown water trade, offshore oilfield and energy services, terminal operations, and vessel construction and repair in this specialized industry – in federal and state courts and before regulatory bodies across the country.
Clients include vessel owners, charterers, offshore operators and contractors, towing companies, marinas and vessel repair facilities, Protection and Indemnity Clubs, yacht clubs, marine insurers, underwriters, and brokers.
Two of Galloway’s maritime/admiralty-focused attorneys, Jason Waguespack and Frederick William (“Billy”) Swaim III, have decades of experience representing clients in the maritime industry. Both Jason and Billy are also frequent and well-known authors and presenters on maritime law-related topics.
