What we do


Cargo Claims

We perform surveys internationally for clients using our network of local surveyors who have been selected based on our know-how and strict criteria. Our seamless service from start to finish includes the issuance of first rate reports which then leaves our clients well-positioned to maximize recovery results. We also manage TPA accounts including adjustments under the corresponding insurance policy.

Cargo Recovery

Our expertise and know-how on international trade allows us to find best-practice recovery solutions across all marine subclasses (Inland, Airfreight, Perishable Goods, Bulk, Steel, Oil & Gas, Hull & Machinery). We obtain outstanding recovery ratios by handling complex and large volumes of claims which give us strategic leverage with opponents. We also offer a comprehensive service for GA and Salvage handling from start to finish.


Property claims are as diverse, as they can be complex with respect to the origin and causes. Our in-house expertise on industrial exposures and business interruption provides us with the required knowledge on the liability regimes to recover against any potential liable third party in all range of property claims, such as fire, breakdown machinery, flood, robbery, etc.


We offer an integrated service that covers the adjustment and casualty settlement for liability claims, as well as the legal assistance and defense of the insured, in judicial and arbitration proceedings.

Our knowledge and experience includes a wide range of third party claims for property damage and/or bodily injury arising out of General Liability, Transport Liability, Product Liability, Cyber, E&O and D&O.
