Our expertise in the shipping sector


The shipping industry continues to face operational and structural challenges related to the global economic downturn. At the same time it faces fundamental reform arising from both geographical and technological change, and increasing regulatory challenge from a number of national and international agencies. Operational and political risk driven business management has increasingly become a part of the shipping sector’s future. The impact of political and economic risks on shipping operations will increase. Indeed, sustainability-driven decision making is gaining momentum. Corporate responsibility and climate change will need to be looked at from strategic, tactical and operational levels. New risk management instruments need to be set up to counter these developments.

Our team has in-depth expertise enhanced through regular networking and knowledge sharing platforms on a UK and global basis to ensure we provide our clients with up to the minute advice and detail on market developments.
