At Palmer Biezup & Henderson our mission is to provide high quality, client-centered, cutting edge and cost-effective legal expertise in a variety of selected practice areas. The client-centered philosophy of the firm is characterized by close attention to client objectives, clear and prompt communication and a continuous awareness of the cost/benefit trade-offs inherent in any legal matter.

One of the few dedicated admiralty and maritime law practice groups on the East Coast of the United States, we are the firm of first resort for complex maritime casualty and commercial cases, with a depth and breadth of experience few law firms can match. But we are equally well known for our experience and capabilities in handling cases involving insurance and reinsurance disputes and claims, marine oil pollution response and litigation, contracts and transactions, inland transportation, warehousing and terminals, marine finance, property and general liability and yachts and recreational boating law.

Our clients include national and international companies engaged in the ocean shipping, insurance, reinsurance, energy, inland transportation, warehousing, petrochemical and manufacturing sectors. We also represent individuals with a wide variety of legal needs. We apply our client-centered philosophy to every client, regardless of size or the magnitude of the matter in which we are called upon to assist.

When a casualty occurs or a commercial relationship develops into a dispute our attorneys are available on a 24 hour basis to respond to emergency matters. We routinely represent the interests of our clients in litigation in the courts throughout the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, serving their litigation needs through our offices in Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and New York. In addition we often represent our clients in litigation in other areas of the country with the local assistance of our network of associated counsel. When a client requires our representation in litigation we bring the resources and experience of the firm to bear on the issues to furnish the highest level of advocacy in the most economical manner possible.

Our commitment to service and the nature of our clients’ legal concerns demand that the firm’s attorneys are always available to address your needs. In case of an emergency requiring immediate response, call 215-625-9900 or click here.
