Cargo recovery & defence

Is the cargo that you have agreed to carry on your vessel damaged, contaminated or off-spec? Is the cargo dangerous? Has your vessel been damaged because of a problem? Or delayed?

Whether you are a carrier, P&I Club, trader or cargo insurer, when something doesn’t go according to plan with the carriage of cargo we can help you to find a solution. Through our decades of experience, we have gained an in-depth understanding of all types of cargo: from oil and grain, through to containerised cargoes and specialist cargoes like 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 can 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 this is needed, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our lawyers are experts in all aspects of shipping law. You will have access to legal advice that is grounded in a practical understanding of carrying and insuring cargo and the problems it presents.

If your business involves the carriage and insurance of cargo, efficient, cost-effective dispute resolution is vital. Our aim is to get the best commercial outcome for you at the earliest possible moment. This will help you to keep any disruption to your business to a minimum.
