Maritime Casualties


Casualty Management is one of the main focus points of our maritime practice. Our Casualty Response Team supports clients in crisis situations such as ship collisions, fires, engine failures, rescue operations, piracy and personal accidents; and is available on-site and on-board to support you at any location in the world at all times. You will have a team of attorneys with the necessary legal skills, technical and nautical experience, to ensure they feel just as home on the pilot ladder as they do in the courtroom.

Due to our close cooperation with shipping, fire and other experts, we can assemble a tailor-made team specifically suited to the needs of your respective case. Via our “Maritime Casualty Hotline”, we ensure prompt assistance is provided immediately after the incident in order to avoid mistakes in the decisive collection of evidence, and to assist your crew in dealing with the respective authorities. In the later handling of the damage in dialogue with collision opponents, insurers and authorities, we stand for creative and (cost-) efficient solutions.
