The arrest of ships is a redundant risk that needs to be carefully managed by vessels’ owners, charterers, and P&I clubs. This measure is employed in both cases of an already proven prejudice or a potential one. Indeed claimants often proceed this way in order to safeguard their interests on an eventual loss that may be sustained by them.
Time being money in the shipping industry, a prompt action is essential to the soonest release of the arrested or threatened vessel. Being trusted by the cargo underwriters and receivers and by the public offices as well, our office can efficiently and urgently handle these issues by issuing an interim security on behalf of the P&I club.
