Brad Gandrup

FisherBroyles LLP

Brad has represented clients for over 30 years in civil litigation and arbitration matters, with a focus on admiralty and maritime law. Brad’s clients have included oil, technology and insurance companies, marine classification societies, vessel owners and charterers, cargo interests, marine construction and dredging companies, and salvage companies.

Brad represented the petitioner in Exxon Corp. v. Central Gulf Lines, Inc., 500 U.S. 603 (1991), in which the United States Supreme Court overruled its own 135-year-old precedent and expanded federal admiralty jurisdiction in favor of his client.

Brad also has substantial experience defending marine classification societies in major malpractice cases, including the $1 billion suit brought by the Kingdom of Spain against the American Bureau of Shipping concerning the massive oil spill from the M/T PRESTIGE off the coast of Spain, and another brought by cargo interests against Bureau Veritas concerning the catastrophic failure and sinking of the M/V STAR OF ALEXANDRIA.

He obtained the first federal maritime decision to clearly hold that, under the Federal Arbitration Act, to be enforceable, an arbitration provision in an international commercial agreement must be in a writing signed by the parties, or evidenced by an exchange of correspondence.

In addition to his litigation work, Brad assists clients in concluding various types of maritime transactions, including the purchase and sale of vessels and charter parties. Brad has also advised clients concerning the coastwise trading provisions of the Jones Act, and federal and state marine environmental law.
