The Nature of Maritime Law

Maritime Law regulates all matters relating to the carriage of goods by sea and is based mainly on international maritime conventions. English law has contributed substantially to the development of Maritime Law from the time that Gr. Britain was a leading mercantile nation.

Originally, Maritime Law was intended to settle the most fundamental legal issues occurring at sea, such as saving life at sea, drowning, saving property, labor relations between the captains of a ship and its crew and obviously, it was meant to safeguard the rules of the maritime trade. As international trade developed and more goods were carried to their destination by sea, the scope and international influence of Maritime Law increased accordingly.

Doron Tikotzky Kantor Gutman Cederboum has an outstanding Maritime Law department that in close proximity to the Haifa Port and the Admiralty Court of Israel. Currently, there are Branch Offices in Romania, Cyprus and Ethiopia, in addition to its China and International Desks. Doron-Tikotzky‘s Haifa Offices are also situated within walking distance from major Government Offices, including the Ministry of Transport.

Maritime Law in Israel

During the rule of the British Mandate, Israel adopted many of the principles of the English legal system, leading to the establishment of the Admiralty Court in Palestine in 1937. In 1952 its jurisdiction was transferred to the District Court in Haifa. Since then this is the only court competent by virtue of Law to hear maritime law disputes involving shipping and related activities.
