L’assurance maritime est la base sur laquelle Clyde & Co a été érigée

Notre cabinet de ce secteur exerce ses activités à partir de nos bureaux au Royaume-Uni, en Europe, en Asie et aux États-Unis, ce qui nous permet de toujours disposer de collaborateurs dans les fuseaux horaires concernés. La plupart des grands dossiers d’assurance dans le secteur maritime de la dernière décennie ont mobilisé des avocats de l’un ou l’autre de nos bureaux.

Nous offrons des services de contentieux et des services-conseils à tous les intervenants du secteur de l’assurance maritime. Nous collaborons avec des assureurs étrangers et les nombreux syndicats, sociétés, courtiers de couvertures captives et autres courtiers, associations en assurance de protection et d’indemnisation et experts en sinistres qui forment le noyau du marché maritime de Londres et de ses assurés.

Nous fournissons un éventail complet de services juridiques et offrons des conseils sur les questions relatives à la coque, à l’énergie, à la cargaison, à la responsabilité civile, à l’interruption des activités et à la réassurance. Nous avons une feuille de route éloquente en matière de services-conseils sur les problèmes de règlement dans les secteurs maritime et de l’énergie.

Nos nombreuses années d’expérience dans les secteurs maritime et de l’assurance nous permettent de bien cerner les défis auxquels font face nos clients, et notre savoir-faire leur permet de trouver des solutions. Nous sommes en mesure d’offrir des conseils sur un large éventail de questions relatives à l’assurance maritime, y compris les recouvrements, la guerre et le terrorisme, la construction navale et la construction extracôtière, les intérêts des créanciers hypothécaires, les yachts, la perte de location, la pollution, le sabordage et la fraude, tous les aspects des accidents maritimes, ainsi qu’une assurance de protection et d’indemnisation, une assurance fret, surestarie et aiguillage et une assurance responsabilité civile des affréteurs.
