Consultancy

We act as consultants for Marine Hull and Liability Insurers, Protection and Indemnity Clubs, white list ship registries, law firms and banks. We combine technical knowledge with an understanding of the industry and its practices in providing assistance and advice to our clients.

For Hull and Machinery underwriters we go beyond mere technical advice on damage. We have significant expertise in working with shipyards and are able to guide underwriters throughout the tendering and repair process and up to the final negotiations of repair bills.

For P&I Clubs, we undertake complex cases throughout the region and are able to put our knowledge of local practices in good use combining this with our technical expertise and our trademark “solution backwards approach”.

We act as technical consultants for lawyers in preparation for legal proceedings and we are often called upon to appear as expert witnesses. This work can range from technical advice on cause and extent of port damage to detailed advice on nautical matters in investigations on cause of collisions.
