Criminal law

Criminal law protects us from being victims of criminal offenses or from being prosecuted.

For the average person there are few scenarios more stressful or intimidating than being before the courts facing criminal charges. As a result, every year countless individuals plead guilty to charges that they would never be found guilty of if they hired an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

The criminal law department deals with every kind of criminal offence. How professionals have knowledge to defend individuals and legal entities.

Your criminal record is one of the most important aspects of your life. It affects your ability to work and to travel. Accordingly, you owe it to yourself to consult with a top criminal defense lawyer before making any decisions on how to proceed with your case.

Civil law

Civil law regulates our rights related with properties of any kind and our personal relationships.

Civil law is based on Roman law rules. It is a legal system originating in Europe. This can be contrasted with common law systems whose intellectual framework comes from judge-made decisional law which gives precedential authority to prior court decisions on the principle that it is unfair to treat similar facts differently on different occasions

Conceptually, civil law proceeds from abstractions, formulates general principles, and distinguishes substantive rules from procedural rules. It holds case law to be secondary and subordinate to statutory law. The marked feature of civilian systems is that they use codes with brief text that tend to avoid factually specific scenarios. Code articles deal in generalities and thus stand at odds with statutory schemes which are often very long and very detailed.

Administrative law connects us with work of public authorities when in our personal or business interactions public interests and/or properties may be involved.

In many cases, starting our new business adventure has to be supported by administrative authorisations or we may have suffered mistakes of different public bodies so we need to receive an indemnification.

Administrative law deals with the decision-making of such administrative units of government that are part of the executive branch in areas as:

Immigration law

Immigration law regulates our rights in a country that is not originally ours.

To get rights to live and work in the country, we need to pass through a specific administrative process to receive an authorisation to stay.

Each country has his own rules and proceedings that regulate rights of foreigners. Before staying illegally in any country, we suggest consulting a legal team experienced in immigration law to prevent yourselves from being deported.

Maritime law and insurance

Maritime law and insurance protect us from hazards related with international maritime or multimodal transport.

Maritime law is a distinct body of law that governs maritime questions and offenses. It is a body of both domestic law governing maritime activities, and private international law governing the relationships between private entities that operate vessels on the oceans. It deals with matters including marine commerce, marine navigation, marine salvaging, shipping, sailors, and the transportation of passengers and goods by sea. Maritime law also covers many commercial activities, although land based or occurring wholly on land, that are maritime in character.

The origins of maritime law date back to antiquity as did trade between nations through sea transport. It thus became increasingly necessary to expand this scope of the law as no country may claim arbitrary jurisdiction over the seas. Consensus between nations also became vital in the face of disputes.

Maritime law regulates the enforcement of contracts and commonly makes provision for damages to parties who have suffered some form of loss at the hands of a contracting party that has failed to honour or perform in accordance with their agreement. Such a contractual clause must be distinguished from the principle of general average which contemplates the voluntary sacrifice made by the master of the ship in respect of cargo, equipment, or funds to mitigate further losses or damage in an emergency. The loss suffered by parties is thus shared amongst other parties who have shared in the relevant venture.

We count on lawyers specialised in maritime law to provide you with legal advice and solve your possible legal disputes.

Airline claims

Airline claims offer us rights to receive indemnification for our loss of time regulated by aviation law.

Airline law is highly specialised field of law encompasses most facets of air travel, as well as the operation and regulation of business issues relating to air travel, which requires a comprehensive knowledge of regulations, specific laws regarding flight, and an in depth understanding of aviation. Aviation law pertains to nearly all individuals connected to the operation and maintenance of aircraft.

It is one of the most complex branches of law. This is due to several factors, including: the globalisation of aviation, the numerous countries involved, commercial and business competition, and overlapping requirements.

The practice of Aviation law can include litigation on behalf of families who are suffering from loss or injury due to an aircraft tragedy and the defense of an aviation professional accused of violating Federal Aviation Regulations.

The most important role of the law of aviation is to provide a framework that keeps the aviation industry safe, fair, and efficient.

If a flight is cancelled, passengers are automatically entitled to their choice of re-routing to the same destination at the earliest opportunity (under comparable conditions), later rerouting, at the passenger’s convenience, to the same destination under comparable conditions (subject to seat availability) or a refund of the ticket as well as a return flight to the point of first departure, when relevant. Any ticket refund is the price paid for the flight(s) not used, plus the cost of flights already flown in cases where the cancellation has made those flights of no purpose.

If the flight is expected to depart on the day after the original scheduled departure time, passengers are entitled to accommodation.
