CSB Group and CSB Advocates at the IBA Maritime and Transport Law Conference in Geneva


CSB Group and CSB Advocates will be attending the IBA Maritime and Transport Law Conference taking place in Geneva, Switzerland between the 7th and 8th May 2015 at the Swissotel Metropole. The conference, which is a prestigious event supported by the IBA European Regional Forum will be entitled; ‘Shipping and Chartering in Challenging Times’.

Malta’s maritime industry is ever-growing along with the several related services that our island offers the industry. Recently, Malta’s ship register moved up to become the sixth largest in the world. This also means that it is the largest in Europe. Along the years, Malta has continuously attracted investment towards industry and was able to secure its leading position in the field through continuously shaping its maritime laws and regulations in a way that meets the standards and needs of the industry.

This conference, organised by the International Bar Association is aimed for lawyers, company representatives and practitioners involved in the field of international maritime law, maritime regulatory compliance, vessel operations and vessel acquisitions. One of the focus areas of CSB Advocates’ professional practice is shipping and yachting, therefore this conference will surely help the team expand their expertise.

IBA is the world’s leading organisation of international legal practitioners, bar associations and law societies with a membership of more than 55,000 individual lawyers and more than 190 bar associations and law societies. CSB Group and CSB Advocates look forward to being present at this event and bringing back the knowledge that will allow them to maintain their leading position in the field.
