Aden in the south of Yemen dominates Bab Al-Mandab which is an important strategic seaport that joins The Arabian Sea, Red Sea and Gulf of Aden with long history of sea trade. In addition, Yemen has other important seaports such as Al-Mukalla on the Gulf of Aden, and, Hodaidah, Makha and Salif on the Red Sea. This strategic geographic location has put Luqman Legal under growing demand to provide professional advice in commercial contracts relating to maritime matters including shipbuilding and repair contracts, registration of vessels and the finance, sale and purchase of vessels. The Managing Partner of the firm has particular experience in this field due to his work at the Ship Finance Department of Richards Butler International Law Firm in London. In addition, the firm advises on cargo claims, international sale of goods, agency and brokerage, as well as specialized issues of insurance and oil pollution. The firm also represents a number of international P&I clubs.
