Casualty Management and Salvage

In any casualty obtaining prompt professional and expert assistance is paramount. Given our past expertise, we are able to assist in salvage, groundings, collisions, engine damage, fire, shifting of cargo and similar major incidents.

In salvage contracts, we offer legal advice on the proffered contractual terms whether it be Lloyd’s Open Form incorporating SCOPIC,  any other standard forms of Salvage Agreements or any independent daily rate contract.

The location of the casualty and whether it is a multi-ship incident will determine the resources we will make available in order to best assist in the co-ordination of the casualty operation. Our firm “manages” the casualty for our Clients by liaising  with the parties involved including the local authorities, insurers, salvors and cargo interests.
