We are able to respond at very short notice to secure the release of arrested or detained fishing vessels, either by negotiating a bond with the MMO or by taking proceedings in the magistrates' court to obtain orders for their release. 

We provide the highest quality legal advice from the moment issues arise and continuity of representation throughout an investigation and the legal process.
