Sheringham P & I Services
Sheringham P & I Services acts as correspondent to some of the major ship owners protection and indemnity associations.
Our services in this area range from dealing with stowaway problems and crew matters to carrying out cargo discharge superintendence and tallying on behalf of owners of chartered members of the various clubs at their or the club’s request.
The majority of these assignments tend to be in respect of cargoes of bulk where problems with the cargo have either been found subsequent to arrival or are anticipated beforehand. We also intervene on behalf of owners and the clubs in the matter of vessel detentions and arrests, and can provide experienced legal representation selected from an approved panel of firms of marine solicitors.
Also under this heading we perform vessel pre-entry condition surveys, including ultrasonic hatch cover water-tightness testing as necessary.
