Marine Casualty Investigation

Our Marine Casualty Investigation department offers an experienced team of mariners, engineers, naval architects and surveyors to provide a global response service for our clients.  We provide expert assistance to P&I clubs, marine solicitors and insurance interests when things have gone wrong.


We investigate a broad range of incidents, including the cause, nature and extent of damage as a result of marine collisions, groundings, and other incidents.


Our team also includes civil engineers, dynamic positioning specialists, mooring specialists, as well as computer software designers and modellers. As such, we combine the practical experience of our mariners with the technical expertise of our naval architects and civil engineers, and use our comprehensive in-house suite of sophisticated software for numerical modelling analysis.


We also routinely act as independent technical experts in matters involving litigation and insurance claims.
