At Kirk Larsen & Ascanius, we offer advice to companies associated with the offshore industry and ensure that the commercial, technical and legal aspects form a synthesis.
Typically, the contracts within the offshore industry are distinct from other areas as they relate to complex products and services which often are to be delivered or installed under special circumstances at sea.
Complex products and service solutions are accompanied by complex contracts. The contracts are often drafted in English and based on foreign industry standards.
We offer advice to all players in all phases of an offshore project and consider ourselves a professionally qualified advisor who is able to strengthen the negotiating position of the company.
Our advice is based on the contract in general focusing on the interests of the supplier such as the cash flow in the project, the assignment of responsibilities, protection of know-how, swift dispute resolution, etc.
An essential focus area in our advice is to identify the risks connected with the offshore project in general and the client’s risk in the project in particular in order to assess the risks and conduct negotiations on a qualified basis.
In the event that disputes arise in connection with the completion of an offshore project, we advise and assist with the resolution of the disputes.
Please contact us for an informal discussion about advice on offshore projects.
We also invite you to visit our website regarding the practice areas “Transport and Shipping” and “Ports”.
