    Marine insurance is the foundation upon which Clyde & Co was established and we are one of the largest specialist insurance firms in the world.

    Providing contentious and advisory services to all parties within the marine insurance business, we work with overseas insurers and the many syndicates, companies, captives, brokers, P&I clubs and loss adjusters which form the nucleus of the London marine market and their assureds.

    We provide a comprehensive range of legal services, advising on hull, energy, cargo, liability, business interruption and reinsurance matters, and have developed a proven track record in advising on marine and energy claims issues.

    Our years of experience in both the marine and insurance sectors means that we have a firm grasp of the challenges faced by our clients, as well as the know-how to help them navigate through those issues. We are able to offer advice on a wide range of marine insurance matters including recoveries, war and terrorism, shipbuilding & offshore construction, mortgagees’ interests, yachts, loss of hire, pollution, scuttling and fraud, all aspects of marine casualties, and P&I, FD&D and charterers' liability.
