Admiralty & Maritime Vessel Arrest Defense

As a major port in the Pacific, American Samoa is host to a multitude of maritime vessels from around the world year round.


As such, maritime vessel arrests occur more often than realized due to a maritime lien or maritime mortgage.  Maritime liens take several different forms but the bottom line remains the same, the vessel is "arrested" to secure the lien.

An arrested vessel means lost revenues.

We will put our expertise to work for our clients to expedite release of an arrested vessel.
