Brad Berman focuses his practice on maritime and corporate finance, offshore incorporation, including Marshall Islands and Liberian law, and private wealth planning.

My shipping clients also seek a wide span of other legal services, from capital markets transactions to litigation and tax advice, and Norton Rose Fulbright's well-established teams in these areas are on point to provide that range of offerings.”
