Our cases include the DG HARMONY, ABT SUMMER, HANJIN PENNSYLVANIA, HYUNDAI FORTUNE, CARNIVAL SPLENDOR, ATLANTIC CARTIER, DANIELLA, NORMAN ATLANTIC, MSC FLAMINIA and most recently the MAERSK HONAM, Clients benefit from rapid global response and expert technical advice and analysis to determine origin, spread, spread, risk and consequences. We are renowned for our marine forensic investigation services which cover fire and other peril damage to hull claims; technical support on causation; technical support for the management and handling of hazardous cargoes; forensic sample analysis; advice on cargo damage/contamination and expert testimony.
