Graeme Bowles joined Brookes Bell in 2011 and became a Partner in 2012. He is an experienced Master Mariner and listed SCR, having spent over 28 years as a consulting surveyor after leaving the sea.
During that time he has seen a wide range of different problems and situations involving various ship and cargo types. He is listed by Lloyd's Salvage Arbitration branch as SCR in recognition of his extensive salvage and casualty management experience in various roles following fires, collisions, groundings and similar mishaps, including several major container ship casualties. His seagoing experience was mainly in chemical tankers and the problems associated with the handling of liquid cargoes in bulk, including chemicals and vegetable oils, are his particular expertise. He has written reports for and given expert evidence in litigation arbitration and mediation in England, Scotland, The Netherlands, the USA and China.
