Legal Assistance and Defence Insurance

divider

Legal Assistance and Defence Insurance covers an owner against legal costs or expenses resulting from pursuing or defending claims arising from contractual disputes and in relation to the operation of the ship.

LEGAL COSTS COVER

Cover is discretionary and is based on an assessment of the merits of the case. Where possible we will always look to settle on commercial terms but if a case needs to go to mediation, arbitration or litigation then this process is managed by the Carina team. Shipping disputes are costly and time-consuming and the services of the Carina team in helping to manage these problems is invaluable to many of our clients.
