Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) January 10, 2014
As an experienced litigator in all aspect of maritime law (including marine insurance, yacht ownership, maritime liens, ship mortgages, limitation of liability actions, shipyard issues, and collisions), Robert McIntosh has established himself as a leader in a field often poorly understood even by individuals who own, sail, or build boats. Having learned over his lengthy career that mediation is often the best approach to resolving maritime legal issues due to their immense complexity, Mr. McIntosh recently announced his membership in the fast-growing mediation network, Mediation.com.
“When it comes to boats and legal adventures involving them – in dock, in the factory, or on the water – I have truly seen it all,” said Mr. McIntosh. “I’ve represented vessels in collisions, suits concerning repairs to ships, warranty claims, salvage cases involving historic vessels, as well as the legal aspects of financing ship purchase and construction and cases where ships have been seized for debt service or foreclosures. The maritime field is complicated and difficult, and I’m proud to have devoted my career to the practice. Mediation can sometimes make complex maritime cases simpler and less expensive to resolve, and I am a huge supporter of mediation as a strategy.”
A graduate of the University of Florida College of Law in Gainesville, Mr. McIntosh concentrates on maritime law and general civil litigation. A widely published author and frequent speaker on maritime law topics, he recently decided to focus more on mediation solutions when appropriate for his clients, and has done extensive work with insurance claims.
Mr. McIntosh is board-certified in civil trial law by The Florida Bar and is admitted to practice in Florida, the US Court of Appeals Fifth and Eleventh Circuit, and the US Supreme Court.
