Towage and offshore services are vital to the economies of Mississippi, Texas and Louisiana. That’s why since our firm was founded we have represented companies serving these sectors, including many of the same clients for decades.

With offices strategically positioned in the Ports of New Orleans, Houston and Gulfport, Lugenbuhl’s team of experienced admiralty and maritime lawyers is uniquely qualified to advise and assist clients whose tugs, towboats and barges assist other vessels or transport cargo along the Mississippi River and connecting waterways, or who own or operate tugs and offshore-supply vessels that serve the Gulf of Mexico oilpatch, Atlantic wind farms and beyond.

This highly specialized area of law and practice is foundational to Lugenbuhl. In fact, the maritime laws governing tugs and barges is so integral to our firm that our founding partner, Charlie Lugenbuhl, taught a course on the subject at Tulane Law School for many years, and current partner David Sharpe has continued to teach the class, now titled “Towage & Offshore Services.”

Whether you need to negotiate or enforce a maritime-service contract or a charterparty, Lugenbuhl attorneys will provide efficient, timely and effective assistance.
