Our shipping and transport team has recently acted on behalf of Turkish law firm, AKT Law, in the registration of several yachts, including superyachts, onto the UK flag.
Based in Istanbul, AKT Law initially engaged with Andrew Jackson Solicitors in relation to the preparation of security over a 42m superyacht.
The firm has since instructed our team to register a further seven yachts, ranging in length from 12m to 42m, which have been transferred from the Marshall Islands, Cyprus, and British Virgin Islands onto the UK Flag.
Dominic Ward, partner and head of shipping & transport at Andrew Jackson said: – “We are delighted to have assisted AKT Law and to act as their trusted UK partner on the registration and security of their clients’ yachts onto the UK flag.
“We are ideally placed to provide a timely service, particularly as my colleague Rebecca Forder has expertise in the registration process and an excellent working relationship with the UK Register, which has developed over many years and numerous transactions involving vessels of all descriptions.”
Rona Kaspi, partner at AKT Law, added: – “The team at Andrew Jackson has a fantastic response time and provides us with an excellent service; we know that our clients are in good hands when they wish to transfer vessels to the English Flag”.
