    Casualty

    This firm has an impressive global footprint and delivers high-quality work from both mainstream shipping jurisdictions and emerging markets
    Chambers & Partners Global 2014

    Our dedicated and highly experienced marine casualty team; comprising of lawyers, Master Mariners and marine investigators, can be immediately deployed to support you in emergencies.

    Our global network of offices ensures we have a team available at all times of the day, wherever our clients are or the catastrophe is located. We have been involved in responding to the majority of shipping disasters over the last few years, and our work on these high-profile casualties has led to our team becoming a market leader.

    We support our clients from the moment they come to us for help, ensuring that the actions of our emergency response team tie in with the client’s own crisis management team so issues can be dealt with together as they arise. We ensure that all the evidential issues are anticipated, potential contradictions or inconsistencies are identified early on, and any evidence tested as much as possible before becoming reliant on it.

    We handle collisions, recoveries, salvage and general average, unseaworthiness, fires and explosions, grounding, total loss, transhipment, pilotage, personal injury claims, wreck removal and deep sea recovery projects.
