We’re closely in touch with vessel’s Owners, their P&I insurances and building bridges between them and our customers and our insurance (ITIC)
We take care of formalities when naval casualties arise, either they are caused by ships or not and affecting the ship itself or the port facilities.
In case necessary, we act to save our principals’ interests by vessels’ precautionary arrests and embargoes.
We also assist and take care of stowaways, saving Owners’ best interests and dealing with authorities, granting their repatriation in those cases is mandatory.
These claims, summaries, controversies and legal steps, may take years to be solved. That’s why we are constantly monitoring them to their completion and being continuously alert.
