Florida Marine Business Attorneys

In addition to assisting marinas and boatyards, our marine business attorneys have significant experience dealing with the many marine service and repair businesses that work at marinas and boatyards as independent contractors. Marine businesses include electricians, divers, boat cleaners, engine repair. Many of these businesses are sole proprietors and can't always follow industry best practices of documenting all aspects of the job. In many instances, a vessel owner or captain looks to take advantage of the lack of formality and documentation and not pay these service providers for the work that was done. Guy Yudin & Foster, LLP. helps marine businesses get paid, with or without proper documentation.

Our experience representing marine business attorneys also affords our lawyers a unique perspective when working for boat owners who have legitimate claims against marine businesses for negligence, defective workmanship or breach of contract claims.
