We understand the complex nature of marine insurance matters as there are often a number of international elements involved in such claims.
We collectively provide local expertise combined with global knowledge, as well as the correct level of practical knowledge and the specialist commercial skill set required to achieve the right outcome for our clients. We also understand the best approach to efficiently and effectively navigate through these often complicated matters while remaining sensitive to the reputations of our clients during these difficult times.
Member firms of Global Insurance Law Connect understand and advise clients on the impact of current developments in the marine space. Such developments include a recently introduced service tax for all overseas exporters chartering foreign vessels for the purpose of supplying goods to India; revisions to the London Maritime Arbitrators Association terms, the Intermediate Claims Procedure and the Small Claims Procedure, collectively known as the LMAA Rules which came into effect in May 2017; and the continued risk of piracy in the region which international anti-piracy measures seek to address. Piracy continues to pose a significant threat to vessels transiting the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean.
We offer a full range of marine insurance assistance and advice from H&M, P&I, FD&D, yachts, carriers liability, passenger and crew claims, cargo and logistics. We assist owners, charterers, operators, brokers and insurers across a range of jurisdictions with respect to shipping related personal injury and fatal accident claims which can include both cargo and passenger ships and port/terminal operations.
The team also handles all aspects of charterparties, bills of lading, supply and carriage of goods by sea, air and land in a wide range of jurisdictions.
Our vision and focus is to use the strength and depth of our company to help our clients reduce the time and money they spend on managing risk. If you need a global group of legal advisers, delivering a creative, commercial and specialist service, talk to Global Insurance Law Connect today.
