Admiralty and Maritime Law

A Deep Connection to the Gulf.
A Deep Knowledge of Maritime and Admiralty Law.

As one of the oldest law firms in Mississippi, Rushing & Guice enjoys historical ties to the business lifeline of the Gulf Coast. So much of our business and recreation is connected to the water, and our practice reflects that deep connection.

Maritime law, or admiralty, governs the wide range of issues unique to life and business on the water. These issues include everything from shipping contracts, vessel registration, oil spills, and diving accidents to Jones Act claims, commercial vessels, and cruise ships.

Because admiralty laws are very specialized, attorneys who practice in this area must possess the experience and knowledge to effectively represent their maritime clients or those who have been injured or suffered losses at sea. At Rushing & Guice, we have built a successful admiralty practice that encompasses all aspects of maritime law. Our experience includes representing clients involved in boating accidents, groundings, collisions, and spills.

We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal court in Mississippi and throughout the Gulf Coast Region, and have handled claims involving:

  • Personal injury at sea
  • Personal injury on navigable waters
  • Personal injury while working in a harbor
  • Collisions
  • Cargo
  • Limitation of liability
  • Vessel seizures
  • Vessel mortgages
  • Tugs and towage
  • Marine insurance

Additionally, we have extensive experience in maritime finance matters, including the buying and selling of vessels and the preparation and submission of all required documentation with the United States Coast Guard and other appropriate authorities.
