Cargo claims & defence

Whether you are a carrier, P&I Club, trader or cargo insurer, we have the knowledge to assist you to help find a solution when something does not go to plan with the carriage of cargo. 

Through our decades of experience in this sector, providing advice and assistance across the whole supply chain, we have gained an in-depth understanding of all types of cargo: from oil and grain, through to containerised and refrigerated cargoes and specialist cargoes including LNG and atomic waste. We have come across every conceivable misfortune that can happen to cargo, ranging from war to water damage, pilferage to pollution. We are also experts in advising on varying cargo related issues including dangerous cargoes and cargo contamination.  We provide you with the practical advice that you need when you face a cargo problem.

As experienced litigators we have the technical expertise that is vital in helping you. The very nature of moving cargo around the world means that disputes are often multi-jurisdictional. Through our international offices, we can act quickly to provide you with assistance wherever and whenever this is needed.

Our aim is to get the best commercial outcome for you at the earliest possible moment, which will assist in also keeping any disruption to your business to a minimum.
