“We work with clients in various industries who are impacted by the evolving and complicated nature of admiralty and maritime law,” said Jason Baruch, a shareholder in Trenam Kemker’s Tampa office and chief contributor to the blog. “The Florida Admiralty Law Advisor allows us to better serve our clients by clarifying the legal issues that matter to their business objectives and bottom line. The challenges we tackle on behalf of our clients in these areas are poised to have even greater impact as our state waits to experience the effect of the Panama Canal expansion.”
Baruch practices in the firm’s Commercial Litigation, and Bankruptcy, Creditors’ Rights and Insolvency practice groups. He assists clients impacted by maritime laws in a range of matters, including maritime contracts, carriage of goods, liens, vessel seizure, vessel purchase and sales, dockage issues, collisions, vessel repair and all similar types of commercial matters and disputes among maritime business owners.
For the Florida Admiralty Law Advisor, Baruch covers an array of issues facing maritime professionals, including maritime contract disputes, maritime commercial torts, the interesting ins-and-outs of admiralty jurisdiction in the federal court system, and the implications that the latest legislation and court rulings are having on the maritime industry.
