The workflow of a shipping lawyer can vary depending on the specific case or issue they are working on, but here is a general overview of the typical tasks and steps involved in their work:


Client intake and consultation: The shipping lawyer will typically begin by meeting with a client to discuss their needs and the details of their case. This may involve reviewing contracts, agreements, or other documents related to the shipping transaction or issue at hand.


Research and analysis: The shipping lawyer will then conduct research and analysis to better understand the relevant laws and regulations, as well as any other factors that may impact the case. This may involve reviewing case law, consulting with experts in the field, and analysing data related to the shipping transaction or issue.


Drafting legal documents: Based on their research and analysis, the shipping lawyer will draft legal documents such as contracts, agreements, and pleadings. These documents will be designed to protect the interests of their client and ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations.


Negotiation and dispute resolution: In many cases, the shipping lawyer will work to negotiate a settlement or resolution that is acceptable to all parties involved. This may involve attending mediation or arbitration sessions, and working to find a mutually agreeable solution.


Court representation: In some cases, it may be necessary for the shipping lawyer to represent their client in court. This will involve preparing for trial, presenting arguments and evidence, and advocating for their client's interests.


Monitoring compliance: After a settlement or court decision has been reached, the shipping lawyer will often continue to monitor compliance with the terms of any agreements or orders. This may involve ongoing communication with the client and other parties involved in the shipping transaction.


Throughout these various steps, the shipping lawyer will also be responsible for maintaining accurate records and ensuring that all necessary documentation is filed in a timely and accurate manner.
