Marine Insurance

Insurance underpins all shipping and offshore activity and issues can arise after a claim has arisen where underwriters raise issues on coverage for unseaworthiness, breach of warranty or issues arising in pre placing presentation.

Marine Insurance Lawyers

We are often called on to review coverage issues for both insurers and their insured. Our experience in Complex Environments  means that we are used to working with insurers to resolve political impasses to seek the release of a vessel detained in a difficult jurisdiction. We have been involved in large war and hull claims on behalf of various stakeholders arising out of piracy, maritime casualties and capture at sea.  We have advised on issues arising out of the Insurance Act 2015 including around warranties and unfair presentation.

We are able to advise on all types of marine policies, including:

  • Hull and machinery
  • P & I
  • War Risks
  • K & R
  • Charterer’s liability
  • Builders risks
  • Loss of hire
  • FD & D
  • Cargo
  • Energy

Our lawyers have hands-on technical and commercial industry experience and are augmented with our very capable master mariners. This means we are able to understand, identify and focus on the central issues. We also offer expert guidance and representation for emergencies such as maritime casualties, which you can learn more about here.
