Maritime Personal Injury and Employment Disputes
HBN attorneys have represented and continue to represent some of the largest shipowners in the United States. Since its founding in 1898, HBN attorneys have represented shipowners, terminal operators, and transportation companies in proceedings both domestically and internationally. HBN, as one of the oldest maritime law firms in the country, was already established at the earliest stages of the implementation of federal statutes for the protection of shipping companies and maritime works. HBN has in depth knowledge of the ancient principles and statutory laws used in court proceedings to this day, and seeks to preemptively gain an upper hand in defending claims primarily through strategically investigating, intervening, and minimizing liability post-incident.
