Téthys Naval was founded by Philippe Hermes, Esq. He is a security consultant and lawyer with extensive experience in private maritime security, civil-military cooperation and human rights.

Téthys Naval srl is a consultancy company with a profound staff of advocates and licensed security experts and is specialised in human rights and maritime security concepts.

With the specific support of experts for international law, law enforcement, security policies and security operators, Téthys Naval drafts, evaluates and executes security concepts on a strategic, operational and procedural level with an emphasis on human rights and procedural rights. It serves as contributing expert to international organisations, civil society and military and cooperates with law enforcement agencies.

In practise, Téthys Naval can act as lead security advisor for cross-border projects in the maritime domain.

This included the framing of private security regimes applied to floating installations and maritime infrastructures in confined waters and inland waterways as well as the strict complying with the rule of law. The nature of these critical subjects required a close exchange with public authorities and specific state actors.
