Protecting and promoting high standards in the practice of English Maritime Law

Formed in the late 1960’s to provide legal services to the insurance and shipping markets the firm has played a key role in many headline cases including asbestosis and computer leasing litigation; the aviation insurance losses following the 1990’s invasion of Kuwait; the loss of the “Derbyshire”; uncovering the largest ever maritime fraud in the sinking of the "Salem", and the "Scanstar", "Aegean Sea" and "Prestige" casualties.

The firm specialises in insurance, reinsurance, shipping, energy, commodities and all commercial and regulatory matters relating to the insurance and financial services market.

As a firm we are small enough to operate as a genuine team, but big enough to take on every kind of work that arises in our area of specialism.

The Shipping Group provides a complete marine litigation service, including arbitration and mediation, and non-contentious services to insurers and P&I Clubs, shipowners, charterers and cargo owners. The Group maintains a global network of correspondent lawyers, marine and technical experts, and its members are on call 24 hours a day throughout the year.
