Arizon Abogados SLP is The leading maritime law firm in the south of Spain.
Over more than a decade we have been quoted by Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners. In 2010 Legal 500 said “Arizon is well liked and supported by the main players in the Spanish market” (Legal 500, EMEA 2010 Edition). In 2017 Chambers & Partner rankings mentioned our team as “it is a boutique that does quality work”. Following a policy change our firm has decided not to take part in the procedures run by legal directories.
Our team provides a specialized legal service to the international shipping business in Spain, mainly dealing with Spanish and English laws. We have a comprehensive understanding of the shipping market, both from the perspective of P&I clubs and insurers and that of their members; shipowners; charterers; trading houses; shippers; exporters; importers; shipyards; and financiers/banks worldwide.
We offer a full range of dispute resolution services, from litigation (with a special focus on ship arrest and injunctive relief) to other forms of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration.
Our firm is a founding member of the international network of maritime lawyers Shiparrested.com, which greatly enhances our cooperation with other international Law firms to facilitate the arrest of ships worldwide.
