Complex claims, simple solutions

As the maritime industry scales up, with New Panamax and Ultra Large Container Vessels (ULCVs) becoming a common sight on the world’s oceans, incidents and claims are becoming ever larger too.

It’s a trend which is seeing fewer attritional claims, and less frequent, large, complex claims instead.

As a result of this, insurers, owners, charterers and others require marine consultancy partners that can deal with ever larger and more complex claims.

Brookes Bell can do just that thanks to our multidisciplinary experts, culture of innovation and global footprint.
