La référence en matière de fret, d’assurance et de risques connexes.

Notre équipe mondiale dédiée au fret aide les clients à gérer toutes les questions relatives au fret. Nous nous concentrons sur le traitement et la résolution des problèmes à n’importe quelle étape du processus de transport. Nous possédons de l’expérience dans le traitement des litiges concernant les connaissements, les réclamations portant sur la quantité ou la qualité, la pénurie ou la contamination, l’avarie commune et les conseils sur les lettres d’indemnisation.

Nous travaillons en étroite collaboration avec nos clients pour recueillir des preuves, pour obtenir des garanties, notamment en coordonnant les procédures d’arrestation ou de saisie et pour envisager les champs de compétences et les options de contrat. Notre réseau international nous permet d’être sur le terrain dans différents territoires en traitant les intérêts de nos clients au point de contact.

Un grand nombre des membres de notre équipe conseillent les arbitres du Lloyd’s Open Form Salvage depuis plusieurs décennies. Agissant pour des compagnies d’assurance du monde entier, nous avons traité plus de 1 500 cas au cours des 40 dernières années.

Nous faisons preuve de souplesse dans l’élaboration de la procédure de traitement des réclamations la plus appropriée pour chaque client et nous adopterons la solution la plus adéquate, que ce soit par la négociation, la médiation, l’arbitrage ou le litige, afin d’obtenir un résultat optimal.
