Appointed by Underwriters, we attended the Vessel in Italy, investigated the nature, cause and extent of the casualty and determined the Underwriters’ liability under the Vessel’s H&M policy.

Repairs were followed up and regular reports and updates were issued to the principals. The Assured’s claim invoices were submitted and were reviewed, analyzed and commented upon.
