Malcolm Dann, a Master Mariner with a first class honours degree in Nautical Studies, joined Brookes Bell in 1984. He was a partner from 1990 to 2007 and is now a consultant. His seagoing experience covered an 11 year period during which he served with a major oil company and with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary in ranks up to and including First Officer.
For 2 years thereafter he was Assistant Manager of a major oil inspection company in the United Kingdom. He has worked on numerous ship types as a surveyor and investigated oil terminals and refineries both in the UK and abroad, and is now principally involved in oil cargo related surveys and a wide range of nautical matters, including collisions, groundings and unsafe port disputes. These have led to attendance in court and at arbitration as an expert witness, both in the UK and overseas. He has also been actively involved in the development and running of a joint Oil Pollution Claims Office in La Coruña and in Venezuela.
