LIN & ASSOCIATES was founded in 1976, as a litigation firm in the specialist field of shipping, admiralty, aviation, transportation, and insurance law.  The Firm is now widely regarded as one of the leading maritime law firms in the region of Taiwan.  With a current force of 5 Lawyers, 2 Paralegals and 3 Administrators, the Firm is dedicated to providing our clients with quality and efficient service.  The Firm has been actively and earnestly exploring other areas of legal practice and has been built into an all-around law firm covering litigation (Civil, Criminal and Administrative), arbitration, and non-litigation legal matters with the principal areas of expertise on maritime law and insurance law.  The practice in our specialist field is comprehensive and we deal with cases involving collisions; contracts of affreightment and bills of lading; damage to cargo of all types (sea, land and air carriage); advice to marine insurers on coverage issues; advice to hull underwriters and P&I Clubs; charterparty disputes; stevedore liability claims; ship repairer liability claims; vessel mortgages; sale, purchase, shipbuilding and repair contracts; oil pollution liabilities; dock damage; stranding; salvage; and wreck removals.

Proud to say, we have since established a resounding presence in the local Maritime field as Lawyers for both Cargo interests and Ship Owners and the firm has acted and has won for most of the prominent Underwriters, Shipping Lines, their P & I Clubs and Correspondents in Taiwan and overseas on numerous occasions. We have also built up a very extensive and strong working relationship with the shipping and insurance circles as well as some of our practicing counterparts throughout the years.

aims to provide speedy, cost efficient and effective legal service and advice to our clients in the areas of our specialty and in doing so, we strive to ensure that every case entrusted to us is given our 100% dedication and that the interests of the client is never compromised.

At Lin & Associates, we believe that teamwork produces better returns as teamwork usually generates more creativity.  Therefore at Lin & Associates, we have devised a system where work is allocated to a primary handler who is then supported by a fellow colleague or a senior Lawyer acting in the secondary role. In this way, there is better motivation, and sharing of thoughts. Our fees charged will however always be that of work done by the primary case handler or for work that is necessary to get the job done in the most cost effective manner.
