P&I Claims


Our primary business is providing Protecting and Indemnity (P&I) cover to shipowners and charterers worldwide.

The insurance is comprehensive and includes cover for third party legal liabilities in respect of:

• People Claims
• Collisions
• Damage to Fixed and Floating Objects
• Pollution
• Wreck Removal
• Cargo Claims
• Fines or other Penalties

We can also provide bespoke additional cover for owners, charterers and NVOCC’s for operations which go outside standard risks or which involve specialised marine operations.

As part of our commitment to providing the highest levels of service and advice, our highly qualified, experienced and friendly staff includes a significant number of former seafarers and lawyers. The claims team can also provide Members with swift, concise and focussed assistance, information and advice in response to a wide range of general enquiries. These can cover a diverse range of subjects, from the application of international sanctions to the use of armed guards on board vessels through to questions concerning the carriage of particular types of cargo. If Members have any enquiries or need further information they should not hesitate to get in touch using the contacts links on here.

For many years we have been operating comprehensive pre employment medical schemes in the Philippines and Ukraine (PEMEs) which in addition to providing a valued service to Members, are proven to result in better care for the Seafarer, mitigate claims and reduce costs. To continue with these important objectives we have now also developed First Call for crew landed and requiring treatment in the USA, and a Post Repatriation Medical scheme (PRM) specifically for Filipino crewmembers.
