Second opinion & expert advice

Seamlessly strengthening your teams and in-house expertise from second opinion and an expert view on disputes to strategic advice

Are you in need of:

  • a second opinion?
  • technical input to assess and improve your legal position?
  • a quick review of claim amounts or repair costs?
  • assessment of whether a surveyor is to be appointed?
  • assessment of risks involved?
  • an expert view on a dispute (bunkers, performance, cargo operations, stowage, securing)?
  • assistance with interpreting (nautical) data, documents, logs or data loggers?
  • strategic advice, e.g. when your unrecoverable non-deductible is at stake?
  • any advice on issues outside your area of expertise?

We fill any gap in your in-house expertise or staff capacity and aim to seamlessly strengthen your teams.
