Maritime attorney Matthew Marion is no stranger to high seas piracy. He has represented insurers that have had to pay out on two ships stolen at sea and never returned, and he has handled numerous instances of pirates stealing cargo and then demanding ransoms. Marion says negotiations with pirates often take place on the hijacked ship's bridge and include the head pirate. And attorneys aren't just dealing with commercial piracy. Attorney David Bohonnon handles cases where pirates target private yachts.
