            Marine & Trade

            A focus on international marine and trade brings a need for understanding of the Insurance Act 2015, as well as contract certainty, cyber developments and liability as well as ever-changing regulations and the obligations on underwriters.

            Our Marine & Trade team is known for offering technical advice and facilitation of business relationships, as well as robust dispute and liability advice, in relation to commodities, shipping insurance, cargo, freight and logistics.   

            Spanning operational and commercial contracts, marine finance and leasing, restructuring and insolvency, corporate, employment and immigration, EU competitions and regulatory and property matters, our marine & trade disputes and liability experts lead the market in advising commodities companies on related insurance matters.

            What sets us apart, however, is our commitment to collaboration and individually tailored expertise.  Our thorough understanding of the sector, as well as our cross-departmental links, allows us to draw on a wider range of market-leading expertise.
