About Us

Currently, claim expertise in the Marine industry is hard to find.

While there are a few lawyers providing Marine related legal advice, there are no providers offering integrated solutions to affected parties, which will ensure smooth and efficient settlement of claims at maximum value

Very often claims are compromised due to the lack of proper strategy or understanding of the legal and technical aspects of the claim.

IRDA in its recent report has cited several reasons for Claim Rejections by insurers. These include:

  • Delayed Intimations
  • Delayed Submissions
  • Incomplete Submissions
  • Policy Exclusions and Warranties
  • Inadequate Coverage

Marine Claims, by nature are even more complex owing to the multiple parties involved – Shippers, Buyers, Shipping Lines, CHAs, Transporters, Insurers, P and I agencies and so on.
Claim situations, especially in Hull claims are exacerbated by the multiple laws, liabilities and covers that subsist on the same property.
