Safety and crisis management

Occasionally, things can go wrong that will disrupt your enjoyment of your yacht. At Stephenson Harwood, we have the expertise to manage the consequences of a crisis smoothly and efficiently so that disruption is kept to a minimum. We can advise you on all aspects of marine accidents, including collision, grounding, fire, and pollution.

Our offering is based upon three key features:

  • First class, swift and pragmatic initial legal advice with regard to tactics and probable outcomes.
  • On scene attendance by our own experienced staff to protect your interests, supported by our network of expert surveyors and investigators.
  • Robust and responsive case management with a focus on costs and outcomes.

We know that once the initial crisis has passed, effective management of the aftermath, such as arrest and release, limitation funds, providing and obtaining security and the construction of your best case is critical to a good outcome.
