Hohenstein & Parkinson is a law firm uniquely positioned to provide sophisticated and bespoke maritime legal services to the maritime industry.
With decades of legal experience, we can address our clients’ needs for prompt and cogent legal advice by way of providing representation to the constituents of the maritime industry, including shipowners, charterers, shippers, shipping intermediaries, marine insurers, financial institutions and law firms.
We have a broad and thoughtful perspective based on large firm and government legal work now offered in the context of the efficiencies and cost-effectiveness of a small and nimble legal practice.
Partners Jim Hohenstein and Sheryl Parkinson are legal veterans in the truest sense: both are retired U.S. Navy officers and lawyers with many years of practical experience in both military and civilian practice. We can address the highly complex and challenging legal issues arising in the maritime industry with insight, objectivity and judgment. The Firm is expressly designed to handle difficult admiralty matters that require a high degree of skill and discretion. Given our flexibility, we are in a position to work directly with maritime stakeholders as well as in support of other interested entities such as law firms (both general practice and maritime firms) and financial institutions and marine insurers.
