This Leading City firm are currently looking for a Marine Insurance associate with 3-6PQE to join their team in London.

Their marine insurance group (MIG) acts for the major insurers in both the London (Lloyd's and Company) and International markets. They offer expertise across all areas of marine insurance, including hull and machinery, cargo, war, liability, ports and terminals, and mortgagee interest. They advise on drafting, coverage and subrogated recoveries and specialise in marine casualty.

They have considerable experience in dealing with major international casualties for and on behalf of insurer clients (both property and liability), including ATLs, CTLs, collision, allision, fire, grounding, salvage and wreck removal. Their clients particularly value their assistance in providing novel solutions to unique problems; they will deploy the right response, be it legally or commercially driven.

They are known as go-to lawyers on complex coverage issues, especially in the hull and machinery, war, cargo/commodity and mortgagee interest sectors.

Their MIG offers a dedicated casualty response team which includes master mariners, an experienced marine surveyor and specialised casualty investigators with experience in all the shipping sectors.

They have a market-leading expertise in marine cyber risk issues and security, both from a risk management and legal liability perspective.

They also advise the market on pre-inception risk assessments in relation to general marine risk as well as in specialised sectors such as geo-seismic exploration. Marine underwriters are frequently asked to consider novel and complex projects and policies where more mainstream risk indicators and claims histories are unable to inform the risk pre inception. Their marine insurance casualty response team are able to assist underwriting decisions by providing an in depth legal and technical assessment of the risks, which is focused and commercial. Their team can also advise on policy wordings and structure in the light of the technical risk assessment so the underwriters and their assureds have a clear understanding of how the policy will respond in case of need.
