Urgent Admiralty and Maritime Applications

With all urgent judge-related admiralty and maritime applications, the filing party should contact the chambers of the relevant Admiralty & Maritime Registry Co-ordinating Judge in the Registry where the proceeding is intended to be filed or, in his or her absence, to a judge in the Admiralty & Maritime National Practice Area, in that Registry.

Note: Applications for the arrest of a vessel continue to be made to the Duty (or other nominated) Judicial Registrar unless the filing party specifically seeks that the proceeding be dealt with by a Judge.
