The Shoreside team has worked extensively with some of the world’s leading port operators and logistic companies, and we have wide-ranging experience of cases involving the majority of the UK’s ports and terminals (and their insurers and operating companies). Our experience ranges from disputes arising from major incidents including collisions, groundings, pollution, collapse of cranes, warehousing, business interruption and supply issues, to pure contractual, insurance and coverage related matters.
