We are a law firm specialising exclusively in shipping and international trade. The firm has been established since 2002 and provides efficient and effective legal advice and support to companies Worldwide. Barry Young established Rayfield Mills in 1993 and Joe Crewdson has been with the firm Marine Law Solicitors since 2002. We are based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Being based outside London, however, Marine Law can undertake specialist work at significantly lower rates than most of its competitors. The firm has been built on the basis of providing high quality advice, at a reasonable cost - and that continues to be its aim.
